Let's face it. IPFW isn't exactly catching Oakland at the perfect time.
We're here in Rochester, Mich., inside the O-Rena, where the IPFW men will play Oakland at noon, and then the women's game will follow at 3.
This is going to be a tough one for the men. Not only is Oakland the Summit League leader, but it is coming off its only loss of the conference season, having lost to IUPUI 100-88 at Conseco Fieldhouse.
In that game, Oakland coach Greg Kampe got two quick technical fouls in the final seconds and was given the gate.
The last time Oakland lost back-to-back Summit League games was in January, 2009, when the Grizzles lost at North Dakota State and at South Dakota State.
The last time Oakland lost a conference home game was Feb. 16, 2008, when IPFW won here 71-66.
We'll give you a halftime update.
