Southern California's premier collegiate basketball program is not on TV in the digital age. That gives whoever is left to watch this NIT/CBI bound trainwreck the amazing "opportunity" to engage in a throwback to years gone by and catch the action over the radio on AM 570. The team these fans will get to follow on the radio are also a throwback of sorts. Not to the good old days of Coach Wooden, but to the 1930's and 40's, when we were just another middling program in the conference and irrelevant nationally.
Howland may not care if his players beat each other, but his team had better beat Washington State, lest he pick up yet another performance based reason for his ouster. But to be positive for a moment, at least this untelevised game means that we will be spared the ugly sight of Chianti Dan's garbage arena.
For those with enough morbid curiosity to listen in or follow a gametracker somewhere online, this is your gamethread.
