It’s the home opener!

NCAA Basketball: Oakland at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Who is ready for some mid-afternoon basketball in Mackey Arena? We are playing opposite the Maui (Asheville) Invitational, but against a much easier opponent. Oakland is entering at 0-4 today, but Purdue is down one of its dynamic freshmen in Jaden Ivey. Let’s hope this stays as the tune-up game we expect it to be because a close game, or even a loss, would feel like a disaster after the promising showing in Melbourne.
