A&M-Commerce athletic director Ryan Ivey says the Lion football team will open its 2014 season at home on a Thursday night, Sept. 4, against East Texas Baptist University.  Ivey says head coach Colby Carthel recruited 54 freshmen football players by dividing seven athletic scholarships among them, supplementing scholarships with grants and other forms of financial aid.  And Ivey says the Lion men's basketball team, coming off a 79-76 win over national no. 2-ranked Tarleton State Saturday night, has a good chance of making the NCAA Division 2 tournament even if it does not win this week's Lone Star Conference tournament.
