Just caught this news from SUathletics:
Former Orange star Jonny Flynn, who led Syracuse’s 2008-09 squad to the NCAA Tournament’s "Sweet 16," is scheduled to return to the Carrier Dome for an NBA Preseason game between his Minnesota Timberwolves and the Detroit Pistons. The two squads will meet on Friday, October 15 at 7:30 p.m.
"It’s always great to go back where you started," said Flynn. "Without Syracuse, there wouldn’t be a Jonny Flynn. It will be fun to play in the Dome again. I can’t wait!"
And if Minnesota does the right thing it could be the return of Wes Johnson to the Dome as well. Nice to get our minds off of conference realignment for a bit, although, it is Michigan and Minnesota....
Tickets for the event are scheduled to go on sale Tuesday, June 15th, at 10:00 a.m. (See the SUAthletics link for more purchasing details)
