    You failed to mention the most important aspect of this matchup – the man, the myth, the legend – Greg “Freaking” Kampe.


    “Oakland University men’s basketball and Greg Kampe are two nouns that are interchangeable. Kampe has led the Golden Grizzlies from a mediocre Division II basketball team to a national power, and now from a Division I rookie in 1998-99 to a well respected program that has been to the NCAA Tournament and won two Summit League titles.

    Kampe has been the one constant in Detroit sports over the last 24 years.”
