I see that tonight's NIT game is on ESPN-U but Time Warner doesn't carry that channel. Anyone know if tonight's game will be televised anywhere in the Cincinnati area?

The Enquirer only lists ESPNU so I assume no local TV.

I would think it would certainly be on espn or espn 2, i think the game is suppose to be at an odd time: 6:00pm

It's not on either. It's on ESPNU only. 6:00 is correct.
I'll be there. First I gotta get some Kstate apparell.

Often they will allow a local carrier to pick up the game if they have an affiliation with ESPN's syndicated people, which Channel 19 in Cincinnati does so maybe they will pick it up. I couldnt tell you for sure though.

I had never even heard of ESPN-U until they said that was the station that would carry tonight's UC game.

It really stinks that most of Cincinnati will not be able to see the game.

I'm sure they will just sub it onto ESPN2. However, ESPN U is available via Directv and I think Dish Network. Not everyone is tied down to Cable nowadays.

I wonder if the NIT gets no TV when the Big Dance is playing on the same night?

Time Warner in the cincy metro area sucks, they don't offer much of anything.

According to the blog posted by Post reporter Trent Rosencrans, there is an announcement about the eligibility of UC players for the remainder of the NIT coming up shortly. There was supposedly a report by someone that Jihad Muahammad and James White might be declared ineligible:

OK, we'll hear soon

According to sources, an announcement on eligibility is coming soon.

I've been following that, I'm sure Zimpher is just overcome with joy if it's true.

Has the Huggins presser happened yet? If not, they'll probably call one of their own at the same time that's going on. ;)

It wouldn't suprise me if they did, that is the type of people we have running the joint.

From UC:



CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Pursuant to NCAA regulations, two members of the University of Cincinnati men¹s basketball team have been declared ineligible for continued participation in postseason competition, effective immediately. The NCAA rule will prohibit senior starters Jihad Muhammad and James White from participating in tonight’s NIT quarterfinal game against South Carolina and from any further action this season.
The NCAA made its interpretation clear and confirmed the application of the rule in writing following clarification discussions with UC.
Due to federal privacy law, the university is prohibited from releasing further details without consent from the players.
“We have suspended the players indefinitely for failure to meet the standards set forth by the NCAA and the men’s basketball program at the University of Cincinnati,” stated interim head coach Andy Kennedy. “Our team will continue in its attempt to represent this university in the manner with which it deserves to be represented.”
“The timing of this action, with our team battling for a trip to the NIT Final Four, is incredibly unfortunate,” added UC director of athletics Mike Thomas. “I am very disappointed in how this affects the student-athletes, our coaching staff, the university and our fans.”
Muhammad, a 5-11 guard from Plainfield, N.J., is the team’s fourth-leading scorer, averaging 10.8 points, and top 3-point shooting threat. He averaged 13.0 points and 7.0 assists in UC¹s two NIT victories.
White, a 6-7 swing player from Washington, D.C., is the Bearcats’ leading scorer, averaging 16.3 points. He has averaged 20.3 points over his last three games and has scored nearly 1,100 points during his three seasons as a Bearcat.
“As with all issues concerning student-athletes we are in constant communication with the NCAA regarding eligibility issues,” stated UC Faculty Athletics Representative Dr. Nancy Hamant. “After reviewing this ruling we feel that the NCAA¹s interpretation is correct. I am confident that all parties at UC have exercised their proper due diligence with regard to the eligibility of the effected parties and that this matter is now closed.”

Ugh, unreal. I hope this season comes to an end tonight, I can't take it anymore.

They better hire Cronin or I'm done.

If they win this game w/o Muhammad and White, I'd be stunned. They'll likely lose against UL even if they win this one. How could these players possibly be motivated tonight after this? I'm guessing Chadd Moore and Allen will be starting. Either Allen or Tilford I guess. Not many other choices...
