ESPNU to join tonight's MU hoops game in progress

COLUMBIA | Those tuning in ESPNU tonight for the 8:10 p.m. tip-off between Missouri and Colorado could wind up joining the game in progress.

Weather problems delayed the start of the early ESPNU game between South Florida and Pitt, and the network has told MU officials it plans to stay with that game until its end.

Dave Reiter, sports information officer for MU basketball, said it was hoped viewers would miss no more than five minutes of the MU game.
