Midnight Madness on ESPNU

Thanks to Matthew Bryan-Amaning, we reported this last week, but it’s official now: Washington’s first practice Oct. 16 will be televised by ESPNU.
They’re calling it Midnight Madness, but UW’s first practice begins after the 6 p.m. volleyball match against UCLA and ESPNU will air a portion of the workout.
The network will air a four-hour program featuring nine schools, including No. 1 Kansas, No. 2 Michigan State, No. 5 North Carolina, No. 7 Kentucky, No. 10 Duke, No. 14 Washington, No. 18 Georgetown, No. 25 Connecticut and North Dakota State, which is a strange choice. Not sure how the Bisons made the list.
For a full rundown of the events, here’s the school’s press release.
Events scheduled include: player introductions, a dunk contest, special non-basketball performances by the coaches and players and an intrasquad scrimmage.
Steve Physioc and Steve Lavin are the ESPN commentators at Husky practice. Still no official confirmation, but coach Lorenzo Romar was said to be the emcee for the night.
