It’s always fun to hear about horror stories when it comes to putting together a schedule for a college hoops team, and on Monday morning, ESPN.com’s Andy Katz had a good one.
The Oregon hoops team will kick off their season by heading out to Seoul, South Korea, where they will take on Georgetown in a game at Camp Humphries, which means that their first home game was scheduled to take place on November 13th.
The Ducks were supposed to host Arkansas-Pine Bluff, but last week, the school called and cancelled their trip to Eugene. that put Director of Basketball Operations Josh Jamieson in a tough spot. He called around to a dozen-or-so schools before finally getting Western Carolina to agree to play for $85,000-$90,000, according to Katz.
Here’s the funny part: Oregon has already sent out tickets, which means that some folks entering the arena will leave with a ticket stub that says Arkansas-Pine Bluff instead of Western Carolina.
