Stay awake for hoops

If you're a hoops fan and you can stay awake late, find your way to the Bryce Jordan Center tonight to see Penn State-Maryland.

It's a great early season matchup and it'll be on ESPN2 as part of the Big Ten-ACC challenge.

Yes, it will start at 9:15 p.m. for TV. Should get a big audience, right? Well probably not. Did you notice that Michigan State-Duke will be on ESPN at 9:30?

So it's a late start for a small national audience. But it's a great opportunity for local fans, regardless of the time.

Students should flock to the Jordan Center, we hope. We'll be awake to find out.
