PSU to Play Kentucky in 2011 (...in basketball)

We'll be playing Calipari and Kentucky in next season's HoF Tip Off Tourney.  I'm all for SOS, but holy sh*t.  We get one tourney bid, and suddenly we're playing national powerhouses (well, and a couple of lesser known teams too).

As part of the mini-tournament we will play two games at the BJC: vs. Radford (Nov. 14th), and Long Island (Nov. 16th).  Then we'll play two games at Mohegan Sun Arena: Kentucky (Nov. 19th) and a TBD game Nov. 20th.

What was actually interesting was that I didn't know Calipari was from western PA, and apparently Ed DeChellis knows him:

"We are looking forward to four games of great competition in the 2011 Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off," Penn State coach Ed DeChellis said. "In particular, I'm looking forward to facing my good friend and fellow Western Pennsylvania native John Calipari and Kentucky."

The article goes on to say DeChellis is from Monaca, and Calipari is from Moon.
