Apologies for the slate arriving so late today. And in the interest of saving time, I’ll avoid a lame excuse and just get to the games. Sound good?
(All times ET; TV info courtesy of HDSportsGuide.com)
Long Beach State at Pitt, 9 p.m. ( ESPNU)
So begins a stretch of hoops that could leave the 49ers gasping for air. San Diego State, Louisville, Kansas, North Carolina and Xavier will also be played before Christmas. Hey, Casper Ware & Co. are probably the class of the Big West, but this is asking a lot of any program. Be interesting to see how it all begins. (And FYI, if you haven’t seen this schedule strength breakdown, what’s wrong with you?)
Indiana at Evansville, 8 p.m (ESPN3)
Cody Zeller’s first week at Indiana was a success. Now he gets to face a team that just knocked off the state’s mid-major darling – on the road. Hoosiers will be tested.
Long Island at Penn State, 7 p.m. (BTBN)
Rough start for the reigning Northeast champs, who are 0-2 after losses to Hofstra and ODU. But this trip to Happy Valley is not only winnable, it should actually be up-tempo and entertaining.
Princeton at N.C. State, 7 p.m. (ESPNU)
This is the last game Wolfpack sophomore C.J. Leslie has to sit out. Tigers dropped their opener vs. Wagner. Recipe for the ACC’s first loss?
(Also, Creighton-UAB isn’t on TV. Too bad for those wishing to watch Doug McDermott. Same for Nate Wolters fans wishing to see S. Dakota State and Georgia.)
