Live Blog: MBB Home Opener vs. Upper Iowa

We'll have a live blog during tonight's men's basketball home opener, as the Panthers take on Upper Iowa at the U.S. Cellular Arena.

You can follow the live blog here.

Not much new beyond what was in the regular game notes here. I have added a podcast with Rob Jeter as of last night, so depending on when you checked out the notes you may or may not have heard it. You can also find that podcast here.

Tony Meier seems to be getting back to good health and will play tonight. And, as far as I know for now, the bug hasn't hit anyone else on the team. It did, though, hit Arena event manager Shawn Kison, who reports he's operating at about 70 percent after a bout with the flu over the last few days.

There are a couple of other Horizon League games going on tonight, including an interesting matchup between UIC and Northern Iowa in Chicago.
