Games 9 and 10: Penn vs. Army, Duke vs. Butler

Live coverage of an afternoon doubleheader at the Meadowlands.

Games 9 and 10: Penn vs. Army, Duke vs. Butler


UPDATE: Zack Rosen scored a game-high 20 points and Tyler Bernardini hit some key late three-pointers, the Quakers pulled away from Army for a 68-52 win.

Here's my full story on the game. It will also be in tomorrow's Inquirer, so be sure to pick up a copy.

Now it's time for the much-hyped rematch of last season's national championship game between Duke and Butler. I'll be chatting during the game, so come on by.

Penn vs. Army

Duke vs. Butler

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Greetings from the IZOD Center, which today plays host to one of the most anticipated games of the college basketball season.

Alas, it's not the one I'm here to cover. Technically, I'm here for Penn vs. Army, and I'll be writing a story for the Inquirer about it. But I'll be more than happy to stick around for the second game, for the basketball and to see who shows up on press row to watch it.

When Butler star Ronald Nored suffered a concussion a few weeks ago, the national championship rematch appeared to lose a big chunk of its luster. But the Bulldogs announced this morning that Nored will play today, so there will be a lot of talk about that in the hours before tipoff.

I'll be chatting during the first game, and tweeting during the second. So come on by and share your thoughts on today's action, last night's Holy War or whatever else you want to talk about.
