Cougars Travel To Maryland For Season Opener On ESPNU

9 Nov

The College of Charleston men’s basketball team (0-0, 0-0) will open its 101st overall season in undoubtedly one of the toughest home-court environments in all of college basketball at defending regular-season ACC co-champion Maryland (1-0, 0-0) in the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer on Wednesday, Nov. 10, at the Comcast Center in College Park, Md. Tipoff between the Cougars and Terrapins is set for 7 p.m. (ET) and will be televised nationally on ESPNU. CofC is coming off an 86-75 exhibition victory over NCAA Division II Francis Marion on Nov. 5. Preseason Southern Conference Player of the Year Andrew Goudelock (pronounced GOWD-lock) registered a game-high tying 16 points in the team’s preseason tune-up in preparation for the Terps. This will mark one of the most challenging openers against a major conference opponent in recent history for the Cougars since opening the year at Auburn of the SEC in 2003-04 and at Colorado of the Big 12 in the Preseason NIT in 2004-05. It also begins a stretch of three games in a span of six days with a Nov. 13 road tilt scheduled at Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., followed by CofC’s home opener against Coastal Carolina on Nov. 16 at Carolina First Arena. The Cougars will continue tournament play versus Rhode Island, Illinois-Chicago and Toledo in the 2K Sports Classic Toledo Subregional to be held on Nov. 19-21 in Toledo, Ohio.
