    Got to see Duke and UNC games in person.  Well worth the $40 for both games for my son and I who were in Raleigh for boys showcase.  Double header Sunday afternoon at two very nice facilities watching some of the best college players in USA.

    The WVU-Vermont match is listed as Saturday (not Friday) on the WVU men's schedule page, just FYI.

    Re: UCLA/LMU, it is ironic that the LMU head coach, Paul Krumpe played for UCLA and one of his assistants just happenes to be the son of former Bruin player and Coach, Sigi Schmid.
