Hoops - ACC / Big 10 Challenge Announced

Match-ups have been announced and the Jackets will face Penn St......... The worst news of all this - our game will be televised on ESPN-U, which means virtually nobody will see it. Guess that's what we get for stinking up the court last season.......... No doubt the marquee match-up will be UNC / Ohio State, with both teams bringing in the top 2 recruiting classes in the nation and buckets of talent.
