Are they going to sell Runzas during the game? Might be a little weird if its 90 and humid that day.

I don't understand why Epperson didn't get more minutes yesterday. He only played 8 min but ended up 7-7 with 14pts. Hegner played 32 min and only scored 10. Not that Epperson is a much better rebounder or anything but Hegner can't even locate the ball when it comes off the rim.
