Tuesday, November 20

With just a few days before opening night, Tulsa66ers.com spoke with Tulsa native Will Creekmore for Tuesday's practice report. A 6-9 center out of Missouri State, Creekmore is one of the few returning players competing for a spot on the 66ers' opening night roster.

Born and raised in Tulsa, Creekmore talks about training camp, his offseason improvements and playing in front of his hometown.

Tulsa Center Will Creekmore
On playing in his hometown...
ďItís great. When I went to college [at Missouri State], I was three or four hours away from home so it was rare that my family and friends could see me play, but living in Tulsa now itíll be a great chance to play in front of my friends and family.Ē







 

THE ROAD AHEAD

The 66ers open the regular season at home against the Texas Legends on Friday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. at the SpiritBank Event Center.
