Oct. 8 NBA players game at FIU with LeBron, Wade, Bosh (not yet official...)

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.

FOOTBALL

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.

You mean Modesto Madique, not Mitch Madique campus lol

GREAT!!!
How to get a ticket? Student get in free? So happy, so close~~

Not much of a charity event if students can get in free..Common sense anyone ?

5,000 seats x $150.00 a ticket.

So what is up with Lavarez Mars?

Poooh bear sits on the right side of the bench.

That's a share about Coleman. He was open THE ENTIRE NIGHT, yet Merlock hardly found him.

Wes would've used him ALL NIGHT LONG.

I think they may see if they can use UM arena instead because they can seat way more and they don't prices to be too sky high and create chaos because people couldn't afford the ticket or sold out in seconds. 5000 seats isn't nowhere near enough for something of that magnitude. Low supply, high demand equates higher prices.
