ESPN to shoot Golden Grizzlies home game this fall
The Oakland University men's basketball team's head coach Greg Kampe released the 2011-12 schedule this week. The Golden Grizzlies will play 15 home games, which is the most in Division I history.
"This is the best schedule we have had," said Kampe. "We have the most home games we have ever had and playing seven of them in November and December is a first. We also play Michigan and Tennessee at home and that's a heck of a value for our fans. I'm very excited about this schedule."
Notably, Oakland will make a seven-game home stand with Utah Valley on Friday, Nov. 25, and host the Volunteers in a nationally-televised game. This will mark the first nationally-televised game inside the O'rena and the first time ESPN will be on campus to broadcast a game.
"I'm really excited for our students that we have ESPN coming to our campus for the first time in our history," said Kampe. "I know they will show up in full force to show the country what the Grizz Gang is all about."
The Grizzlies will also play in the ESPN Bracket Buster game which will be held on Saturday, Feb. 18.
