Wisdom Gym is likely to be a popular destination tonight and Saturday as the No. 7 Tarleton Texans (3-0) will host three schools in their annual Thanksgiving Classic.
Up first tonight for the Texans will be a tough Colorado State-Pueblo team that enters the contest with a 1-2 record. The ThunderWolves are coming off of a 83-61 win over Colorado-Colorado Springs, whom Tarleton played and defeated (73-64) in the Texan Tip-Off Classic earlier this month.
Several players to watch out for tonight for the ThunderWolves includes their leading scorer senior forward Stevan Radakovic who is averaging 14.7 points per game and is shooting an impressive 65 percent from the field through the team's first three games.
Another name of note is junior Mark Williams who is the team's second leading scorer averaging 14 points per game. In addition to Williams and Radakovic, the ThunderWolves also have four other players averaging above 10 points per game.
Tarleton's second game, which is scheduled for Saturday, will put the No. 7 Texans up against Emmanuel College (GA).
The Lions are 3-1 on the season and are currently riding a three-game win streak.
Most of Emmanuel College's offense goes through sophomore Emerson McClung who averages 18.3 points per game and is shooting 58.3 percent from beyond the arc through four games.
The fourth school taking part in the holiday competition is Lone Star Conference opponent Texas A&M-Commerce. Every team will play two games, including both LSC schools playing Colorado State-Pueblo and Emmanuel College.
Tarleton is scheduled to tip-off against both Colorado State-Pueblo (tonight) and Emmanuel College (Saturday) at 7 p.m.
