The preseason tips off at Memphis on Octobert 6th which is suddenly less than two months away. All three of the home games appear slated for Conseco Fieldhouse this year and include the Orlando Magic and New Orleans Hornets. So we get an extra, albeit limited visit from Chris Paul this year which ought to light a fire under Darren Collison to go against his old mates.
There's no word on the television schedule for the preseason or regular season yet.
Here is the full preseason schedule:
- Wednesday Oct. 6 at Memphis 8:00 p.m.
- Friday Oct. 8 vs. Orlando 7:00 p.m.
- Saturday Oct. 9 at Houston 7:00 p.m.

One more thing, Mark Boyle's Wish Walk is in day four. After three days, Boyle has hoofed it 46.7 miles while consuming all of the best that Indiana small towns have to offer. Never thought I'd be jealous of a guy on a 500 mile walk. Check out his progress and donate to the cause.
