Counting The Days

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- I think all of the Flyer Faithful are counting the days until the much-anticipated 2019-2020 hoops season kicks off. Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports says we are down to 103 days and counting until the college basketball season officially begins.

The TBT provided a welcome way to mark time until November -- middle of the summer hoops featuring some of our favorite former Flyers. What was there not to like, right?

The interesting twist to the TBT games was the “Elam Ending” developed by Mensa member and UD season ticket holder Nick Elam:
