You didn’t think ESPN was going to let the ACC/Big Ten Challenge get all of the limelight, did you? Of course not. Tonight kicks off the Big East/SEC Invitational. It doesn’t get the hype of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, nor does it have as many games. However, this eight team event does bring us two early-season marquee match ups between four big name programs.
Two games are tipping off at Madison Square Garden tonight, including Kentucky and UConn. Tomorrow, the event shifts to Tampa, where Florida and Syracuse face off, and of course, we will have another open threadage for that game. The other two games of the Invitational: Georgia vs St. John’s tonight, then DePaul and Mississippi State tomorrow.
Feel free to use the comments section tonight to discuss the Kentucky-UConn game and — contrary to what Fetch says — what ESPN refers to as the best freshman in the land: John Wall. Or feel free to talk about whatever you really feel like discussing. Myself, Fetch and SouvenirCity will be popping in throughout the night to join in. So have it, folks. It’s an open forum: nuestra casa es tu casa. Or blog. Whatever.
Oh, and of course, I won’t leave you without the doctor’s recommended daily dose of Beadle. Enjoy.
