THE MEN.(Sports)

Tim Lightfoot

6-3, 195, junior guard

HOMETOWN: Everman, Texas (Everman HS)

1999-00 STATS: 5.8 ppg, 1.2 rpg

1999-00 HIGHLIGHT: Had 37 points during a three-game stretch, two being wins over Washington and Colorado State.

2000-01 ROLE: If Lightfoot can stay healthy, he could provide a spark off the bench or even work his way into the starting lineup especially in the fall while Ruben Douglas is ineligible. T-Light is an explosive offensive threat who can shoot and slash as well as run the floor.

2000-01 ROLE: A tremendous leaper and scorer, White will be one of the team's go-to guys.

White is a gifted slasher and one of the most dynamic dunk specialists the Pit has ever witnessed.

NON-PRO HOOPS AMBITION: Having a family and being a role model for my kids

MAJOR: Business

PET PEEVE: People who talk a lot
