“It was a combination of everybody,” Oakland coach Greg Kampe said. “The whole locker room was mad. I wasn’t there for the end, so I didn’t know how that all went down.

They felt they had things taken from them and they weren’t happy. It’ll be interesting to see how they respond. We should have a good week of practice.”

Saturday’s tip against IPFW is scheduled before the women’s game to accommodate a TV broadcast, beginning at noon and will be aired on FSN Detroit.
