A lot of first's today at Memorial Coliseum.
The IPFW men's basketball team will be tipping off its 2011-12 season at 1 p.m. against Nebraska-Omaha.
It's also the debut of IPFW coach Tony Jasick, who stepped in for a game two years ago, and then coached the Mastodons to an 83-54 victory over Trine in an exhibition game.
And it's also the first Division I game for Nebraska-Omaha, which moves up from Division II. Nebraska-Omaha will be a member of the Summit League next season.
IPFW will make a return trip to Omaha on Dec. 10.
Back at halftime.
