Marshall County High School Girls' Basketball Coach Joseph Simmons and his team are raising money for a trip to the Merv Lopez Holiday Hoops Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Lady Marshals raised $40,000 over the past year to pay for the trip. Of the 8 teams in the tournament next week, the Lady Marshals are the only ones from the mainland. Shelly Baskin spoke with coach Simmons about their upcoming trip.

Shelly Baskin works in MSU's Office of Regional Outreach and is a graduate student in Occupational Safety and Health. A roustabout from Memphis, Tennessee, Shelly first found his way into WKMS through the newsroom back in 2011 through luck, charm and force of will. Though he left news for another position, he still enjoys working on independent radio projects and volunteering for the station. He’s an avid disc golfer and occasional real golfer and is terrible at both. A lover of all things musical, Shelly is always ready to hear something new and unique.
