We interrupt your Penn State-Minnesota “Game of the Century of the Decade” coverage to bring you some Penn State hoops action! That’s right, the season opener for the Nittany Lions and their quest to make the NCAA Tournament begins tonight as they face Maryland-Eastern Shore at the Bryce Jordan Center.
Tip-off is at 7:00 PM ET on BTN-Plus. Unfortunately, you are going to have to shell out the $10/month fee if you want to watch the game, but you can quickly cancel afterwards with no hassle. Alternatively, you can listen to the dulcet sounds of Steve Jones and Dick Jerardi doing play-by-play for free online via the Penn State Sports Network.
Oh, and we have some breaking news: Oklahoma State transfer guard Curtis Jones was just granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA. We’re not sure if he will end up playing tonight, but going forward, you can expect him to be a part of the rotation for providing some backcourt depth.
And as always ladies and gentlemen, the standard open thread rules apply: No porn, no politics/religion, no links to illegal streams of the game, no trolling, and just be kind to one another, mmkay?
