Countdown to Tipoff: 2 Days
With the season tipoff just 48 hours away, the JU men’s basketball team is teaming up with the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s annual TEE Party on Friday night at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m., with a reggae band, great food and drinks and a fabulous array of gifts available for a silent and live auction.

JU’s Barry Milligan will join Mike Dempsey on “The Press Box” from 4 to 5:30 on 1010XL, with a special edition of the JU Insider Show from 5:30 to 6:30, featuring head football coach Kerwin Bell and head basketball coach Cliff Warren.
