Basketball season doesn't start until late October, or early November, but college teams are taking advantage of the summer.
According to NCAA rules, coaches can only work with their players for 16 hours during an eight week period in the summer.
Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray likes having workouts during the summer, but two hours a week doesn't leave much time for interaction between his players and his coaching staff.
"The strength and conditioning part is going very well," Ray said. "It's great that we get to work with our guys during the summer time, but at the end of the day you get eight weeks. We get two hours a week, so we're talking about 16 hours that we get a chance to work with our guys, which is really two full work days if you look at it that way."
