Radford at Penn State 11/14/2011

My second basketball game of the season was to see Radford play against Penn State. Since I live in State College it was an easy trip to make, all I had to do was make sure I was off of work when I made the schedule. Something that sounds simple but of course I forgot so I had to make some last minute calls to...

Long Island at Penn State 11/16/2011

Long Island came into Penn State trying to get their first win of the season after making the NCAA tournament last year. When Long Island were able to dictate play and push the pace to their style, they looked like the dominate team and took the lead on multiple occasions, but they slipped in the final few minutes...

Youngstown State at Penn State 11/23/2011

The Youngstown State Penguins rolled into Happy Valley the day before Thanksgiving attempting to remain unbeaten on the season. The Penguins managed to shoot over 50% from three but would it be enough to take down the Nittany Lions? Travel and parking were real easy with Penn State on Thanksgiving break, meaning...

Lafayette at Penn State 12/7/2011

Penn State hosted Lafayette on Wednesday night in a game that featured a pregame snow squall, Jim Burr and one team shooting ice cold. Would we be in for a red-line upset? Last year, I started writing stadium and arena reviews. My first basketball review was at Lafayette where SID Philip LaBella was gracious...

Mount Saint Mary's at Penn State 12/18/2011

Mount Saint Mary's came into the Bryce Jordan Center to play Penn State, looking to improve on their 1-8 record and hand the Nittany Lions their third straight Red L...

Belmont at Marshall 12/19/2011

I finally had a chance to leave Happy Valley and see some mid-major basketball with neither team being Penn State. It's about a seven-hour drive from State College, Pa., to Huntington, W.Va., so I stopped last night just outside Pittsburgh to visit the in-laws on the way. From the in-laws, it was a four-hour...

Cornell at Penn State 12/21/2011

After my trip to Marshall and seeing an exciting game come down to a missed layup at the buzzer, I was excited to have a day off to spend at home. Instead, I took a slow drive back to Pennsylvania, then wound up just sleeping most of the day away at the in-laws. My wife finally got me up, and we decided to load...

Belmont at North Florida 1/2/2012

I attended the Belmont at North Florida game as the last game of my 10 sporting events in seven days road trip that took me from Michigan to Florida. The game was my third of the day and was part of a doubleheader with the women's teams from both schools playing the first game. I was excited to finally see...

Navy at Bucknell 2/29/2012

It's been a few weeks since I've been to a mid-majority game and I needed to get my fix. So, when I saw a tweet mentioning that Bucknell was hosting Navy in a first round Patriot League game I decided to make the trip. Bucknell is a team that has been the cream of the Patriot league for a few years now, earning...

CAA Final: Drexel vs VCU + STOLEN TIGERBALLZ!

The CAA final between the Drexel Dragons and the Virginia Commonwealth Rams was game one of my six games in 28 hours journey. Since I was headed to Winston-Salem the next day, I stayed about 15 minutes to the south right on Interstate 95. I splurged on a hotel room, something I don't normally do, spending $40...

MEAC marathon: Game 1 of 5

After watching a good CAA final in Richmond on Monday night, I drove to Winston-Salem for the first round of the MEAC tournament. Some have asked why. Well, two reasons. One is just because it was a chance to catch five games in one day. Two is just to help the 800 games project. Sure, five games in one venue...

MEAC marathon: Game 2 of 5

The second game started pretty much right on schedule around 1:30pm. The Aggies of NC A&T jumped out to a quick 13-7 lead before Howard found their rhythm and came back for a 19-13 lead. As the half played out, I noticed that Howard had trouble every time the Aggies pressured the player who was trying to inbound...

MEAC marathon: Game 4 of 5

Game four started and I moved a bit trying to get a few good game photos. Thankfully only a few hundred fans were at the game so it was easy to get close to where I wanted. Even better was the guy in front of me was a fan shooting photos with the same camera as me, and he talked to me for a few minutes and he...

MEAC marathon: Game 3 of 5

I wrapped up the second game story just as game three was tipping off between the North Carolina Central University Eagles and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks. Unfortunately unlike the previous two games this one did not come down to the final minute. In fact, it did not have much suspense at all,...

MEAC marathon Game 5 of 5 The Lemon-Lime Game

Game five started and the first thing I could think of is it looked like the game should have been presented by 7up. In some strange uniform selection process, both teams came out in single color uniforms. The Florida A&M Rattlers were wearing green while the Coppin State Eagles wore yellow with a small amount...
