Mitchell Stars In Sports Illustrated Video

DENTON, Texas – Sports Illustrated’s Bill Frakes came to the Super Pit earlier this month to feature Mean Green Preseason All-American Tony Mitchell. Check out the video here!

Frakes and Mitchell shot the video over a two-day span, and even captured Mitchell dunking with a super slow-motion camera.

Mitchell was named a Preseason All-American by numerous preseason publications, including CBS Sports, Blue Ribbon Report and Basketball Times Magazine. In Sun Belt play as a freshman last year, the Dallas native led the league in scoring (15.9 PPG), rebounding (11.8 RPG), 3-point percentage (47.1), blocks (3.1 BPG), and was also second in field goal percentage (58.1).

He even set the school record for blocks at 70 in just 23 games.

Mitchell and the Mean Green will host East Central in exhibition action on Thursday night at the Super Pit. Admission is free and tipoff is slated for 7 p.m.
