--The schedule includes 12 games against teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season, and 20 games against teams that made national postseason tournaments in 2007-2008. 

--Freedom Hall will be the site for the first annual Marques Maybin Classic, an event named for U of L's No. 12 all-time scorer who was paralyzed from the waist down in a motorcycle accident on Aug. 5, 2003. He is currently enrolled at U of L to complete his degree requirements. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be earmarked for the Marques Maybin Medical Fund.

--One day of rest and a flight from Cincinnati to Phoenix makes that Minnesota game look awfully dangerous.

--It looks like there's a pair of particularly rough league stretches to watch out for. The first is the Villanova/Pittsburgh/Notre Dame trio in early-to-mid January, and the second is the Georgetown/Marquette/Seton Hall/Wst Virginia sequence to end the season.

--UNLV at 6 p.m. on New Year's Eve should be a nice party complement. Prepare for me to not hear a word you're saying, disinterested females.

--You can't show me this during the first week of September and not expect me to be frustrated.
