How do you fill US Century Bank Arena? Looks like you just have an NBA lockout and shove a bunch of big NBA stars into the joint.
Source at the Mitch Madique Campus texted me in the wee hours Tuesday morning that the Oct. 8 charity basketball game, possibly featuring the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Chris Paul, Amare Stoudemire, isn't a completely done deal yet to be placed at US Century Bank Arena. When I asked when things would be official that FIU would host, I was told to check back Wednesday.
It was first reported Monday night by the Associated Press' Tim Reynolds that FIU was a probable site for the game.
Wide receiver Glenn Coleman has a sprained shoulder and definitely will be out against Duke.
Apparently the news that quarterback Wesley Carroll is feeling better prompted some Vegas sports books to put FIU-Duke up, installing FIU as a three-point favorite. Leroy's, Stations and The Wynn all kept the game off. Carroll, Jake Medlock split practice snaps evenly, according to Cristobal, with third-string quarterback Lorenzo Hammonds getting a few seven-on-seven reps.
