Podcast: Wofford men's basketball team to host nationally televised game, November 18

Wednesday, November 12

Early morning game part of ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon

 

After a great season last year that took them to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in five years, expectations for this year's Wofford men's basketball team are understandably high. With 11 players returning, including all five starters, Wofford is this year's preseason pick to win the SoCon title and earn another trip to the Big Dance.

 

But before they get that far, there's a game on Tuesday, November 18 (against MAAC preseason conference favorite, Iona) that promises some intrigue of a different sort. First, it's going to be nationally televised on ESPN2 as part of their College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon, and tickets are just $5. Second, the game is scheduled for 7 a.m.

 

An early morning, mid-week, nationally televised game between two teams with sky-high expectations? Sounds like the perfect excuse to call in late to work (not that we condone that sort of thing), put on some gold and black, and head over to Benjamin Johnson Arena to cheer on Spartanburg's own Wofford Terriers. Check out our podcast below with Wofford Men's Basketball Coach Mike Young for more about Tuesday's game and about the season ahead.
