Great post for a great team. Now go beat Memphis. WPS

Interesting. Soccer playing at 6:30 pm, first hoops game two blocks away at 7. I know the soccer field only seats 1500, but still a surprise that they’re going head to head.

The NCAA sets that time.

I see no reason why the NCAA would have made us play on Friday night when our next opponent won’t be decided until Sunday afternoon, when Clemson plays at home. With online streaming there is no need to tweak the schedule for TV. I would suspect UA told NCAA what would be good times for us. I’m just surprised that one of those would have been up against basketball, but it looks like we had good crowds for both so it worked out.
