Ole Miss Men’s Basketball: Tuohy Tour with Breein Tyree


[upbeat music]
What’s up Rebel Nation?
This is Breein Tyree here,
and I’m here to give
you guys a personal tour
of the Tuohy Basketball Center.
We’ve got 24 hour access
here as student athletes,
especially being on the
basketball team.
Whether that’s fingerprint
access
or men’s basketball cards
or women’s basketball cards.
And this is pretty much
where we come daily
to put in work, work on our
craft,
and hopefully one day
get to the next level.
If you follow me, I’ll
give you guys a little tour
of the Tuohy Men’s Basketball
Center.
Let’s get started.
This is the Tuohy Center.
This is where we spend
most of our time here
at Ole Miss.
I spend probably 70% of
my time in this facility.
Watchin’ film, workin’
out on my own, practice,
gettin’ treatment, in the weight
room.
Bunch of different things we do
in here.
And this is just an entrance
and I think it’s pretty cool,
it’s got a pretty high ceiling.
These are our jerseys.
The two in the middle
are our home jerseys,
and the two on the outside
are the away jerseys.
In this hallway right here,
you got your coaches’ offices.
And it’s closed to us after
the hours of eight and five,
but during that time we can go
in there
and watch film with the
coaches, talk to the coaches.
Whether we got a question about
a play
or gettin’ to a class, if we
need a ride,
this, that, or another,
that all happens in there.
Let’s keep going.
This is our media/dinner room.
This is where we come
and eat pre-game meal,
get catered from all the
best restaurants in Oxford.
We watch games on all four TVs.
And pretty much, this is where
we come for pre-game meal
and we eat as a team and
maybe watch our opponents
that we have to play the
next week or even that night.
Maybe get some film up while
we’re eatin’,
get our minds ready.
And also this room’s got
a little bit of history
about this building.
It was founded by the Tuohys,
they had the movie The Blind
Side
and they’re a major part
of the Ole Miss family.
Without them, a lot of
this wouldn’t be possible.
Follow me to one of our fueling
stations here in the Tuohy.
This is one of our fueling
stations here in Tuohy.
This is where you come after a
lift
and pretty much get
the fuel that you need,
for your body to rejuvenate.
We got anything from protein
bars, protein shakes,
bananas, oranges, anything for
your body to get back right.
And this is where you come, one
of the places where you come
and pretty much refuel.
Follow me to our
state-of-the-art weight room.
You can see through
these windows right here,
but follow me and get a closer
look.
As we’re walkin’ you just
see some of the legends here
that have passed.
Silins, I had the honor
of playing with him
my freshman year.
Moody, I learned a lot from him.
Jarvis and Marshall, just guys
that came
and pretty much one of the
reasons why
this amazing building was built.
Come into the weight room.
We got four benches.
Plenty of treadmills,
ellipticals, bikes, weights.
We got VertiMaxes,
bands, anything you need
to get your body back right,
even a stretching machine.
Anything you need to work
on your game, get better,
it’s gonna be in here.
And this is one of my
favorite places to be
just because I always
like gettin’ stronger.
I always feel like strength
is a big part of the game,
so this is one of my favorite
places to be
and I’ll probably be
here later in the day.
And after a lift I always
get treatment afterwards,
so come, follow me to our
training room.
This is the training room.
This is where we pretty
much come, get treatment,
after games, before games,
after practice, before practice.
If your body’s hurtin’
you come see your trainer
and you pretty much work
on whatever you need
to be worked on.
This is also where we come
and get taped before practice.
One of our players, Jarell here,
my boy,
gettin’ taped, gettin’
ready for a big’s work out.
And pretty much this
is also where you come,
do rehab on any injuries that
you have
and pretty much just get back
right
and get your body ready to play.
This is one of my boys,
Karlis, right here.
[hands smacking]
Puttin’ in work, tryin’ to get
back.
I know how it is but
somethin’ that we gotta do.
And being in here, kinda
can be strenuous sometimes,
but gotta stay true to the
grind and just keep workin’.
Move in here, we got a
indoor pool facility.
Indoor treadmill, this is
where you pretty much run
without hurtin’ your knees.
We also have hot tubs
and cold tubs, brand new.
I think they just came
in, like last December.
Andrew here is the head trainer.
It’s my mans, you already know.
Sometimes, I don’t do all the
time what I need to be doin’,
but he’s always here to
help, whatever we need.
And yeah, this is also one
of my favorite places to be,
especially the warm tub.
Cold tub isn’t as fun but it’s
brand new
and this is just one of
the tools that you can use
to better yourself.
Follow me, we’re gonna head
on over to the player lounge.
As we walk through here
we got identical courts.
One side is the girl’s court,
one side’s the guy’s court.
And this is where we come
to practice daily and put in
work.
Follow me to our exclusive
player lounge.
Key on the word exclusive.
Fingerprint access 24/7.
Whatever you need, anytime
during the day,
you come in here, you need to
take a nap
before one of your classes,
in between classes.
Come in here and get somethin’
to eat.
We got sandwiches,
cereal, granola, bananas,
all different types of food.
They restock it every day.
You need to come in, beat one
of your teammates in pool,
you can do whatever
you need to do in here.
I don’t know if y’all
like Fortnite, but I do.
We got an Xbox, PS4, four TVs,
they all intertwine together,
you could play Fortnite on a
100-inch TV.
Pretty much do whatever you want
in here.
This is where, pretty much,
a lot of the fun happens
in the practice facility.
In here’s our film room.
This is where we’ll watch film
on all of our opponents
that we’ll be takin’ on
throughout the year.
And in here is strictly
business.
A lot of the times we
don’t even talk in here
when we’re in here.
We just listen to the coaches
and listen to our objectives for
the week
and pretty much the guy
that you gotta guard
in the next game.
So this is also another one
of my favorite places in here.
We spend a lot of time in
here throughout the week,
more so during the season.
We’ll also have team meetings in
here
just so we’re all on the same
page.
And this is where a lot of
communication goes down.
This is our player locker room.
This is where you get all your
gear,
where you get ready for practice
and where you get ready
to just put in work,
work on your game.
My locker’s right over here.
You see that Bree Ty fo’ up top?
This is where it all goes down.
It’s pretty much one of my
favorite places in the BPF.
Everything I’ve said so far is
one
of my favorite places in the
BPF,
but I mean this is where I
spend a bunch of my time.
You see I’m from Somerset, New
Jersey,
shout out to my fam back at
home.
Most of the times when I’m in
here,
I’m either hangin’ with my
boys, ’bout to go workout
or just listenin’ to music.
We gotta Wi-Fi system
playing music called Sonos.
Play music whenever you want to.
The new J Cole just came out,
so I had to
[hip hop music]
bump it a little bit,
but other than that,
let’s go checkout what’s
goin’ on on the court.
And this is the gym, finally,
where all the magic happens.
I mean, this is where we put in
work.
As you can see, the bigs
are workin’ out right here.
The guards gotta work
out in about 35 minutes.
And this is where you come
put in work on your game,
work on your craft, work on your
handle,
work on your jumper.
And this is it.
That’s the Tuohy Center.
That’s my tour for you guys.
I gotta go get ready, I gotta
work out,
but hope you guys enjoyed it.
I’m outta here.
End off with a little J,
you know what I’m sayin’?
Just so you know the work is
real.
