The D-League (Pre)Season Starts Today!

The defending NBA Development League champion Rio Grande Valley Vipers will host the Halcones Universidad Veracruzana en Xalapa, the four-time defending champions of Mexico's LNBP league, at the University of Texas-Pan American tonight.

I know. I'm excited too.

Not only will it be the first time Jordan Eglseder plays a D-League game (I seriously can't wait until I get to see him against the Texas Legends on November 18 live in HD on Versus!), but I'm also intrigued to see what Jerel McNeal and Richard Roby have to offer in their D-League premieres (along with Patrick Sullivan, who I know nothing about aside from the fact that he was a training camp invite for the Rockets).

As far as Halcones Universidad Veracruzana en Xalapa, which seem to be better known as Halcones UV Xalapa, they actually have some players you might remember from their college careers.
