Hello Duke fans and Crazie-Talkers,
Tonight the Blue Devils face off against the defending Division II National Champions, Cal Poly Pomona at 6 PM EST. We have been excited for this game for some time, mainly due to this post from the ESPN College Basketball Nation Blog in early September. It seems the CPP community is super stoked to visit Cameron:
“What an absolute thrill for our players, coaches, staff and university,” Cal Poly Pomona coach Greg Kamansky said in a statement. “We’ll have an opportunity to savor the successes last season by playing against a program that represents the very best that our sport has to offer. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we look forward to the challenge of playing against a talented team that should be the preseason top-ranked team in the country and coached by one of basketball’s true icons and ambassadors.”
What a stand up guy this Kamansky fellow is! And apparently the excitement has only built in Pomona: the school is having a campus watch party at their student center.
As I am currently abroad in Ireland and can’t watch the game in person, I will be liveblogging right here on Crazie-Talk. Feel free to join the fun using the console above. You can watch the game online at GoDuke.com for a $10 monthly subscription. Several C-Ters will be in Cameron taking video of the game, so be sure to check the site frequently over the next few days for more highlights like this.
Enjoy the game, and I hope to be chatting up a storm with hundreds of Duke fans champing at the bit for this season to start.
See you right here at 5:45 PM EST.
