And the team with the first win of the 2008-09 season is ... Georgia Southern?
Yes, Georgia Southern.
The Eagles started the college basketball season by beating Houston 65-63 this afternoon at Cameron Indoor Stadium while proving that the days of Clyde Drexler (the player, not the coach) are way in the past. Seriously, this is not a good way for Tom Penders to begin a season in which I already explained how he's on the hot seat. It's not that Houston was supposed to win C-USA, mind you. But the Cougars should still be able to handle the team picked third in the Southern Conference South Division, shouldn't they?
Anyway, that's the answer to your trivia question.
Who won the first game of the 2008-09 season?
Georgia Southern, of course.
