CBB - Sorry to belabor this point, but are you absolutely, POSITIVELY sure the scrimmage is at 6:00? (I don't want to miss a minute of the action.)

Yes, it is at 6. Not only does the official press release say 6, but our sources told us 6 and Cornell Athletics tweeted that the original 5 pm time was a typo. It is 6. If you show up around 5/530, you should see the guys warming up and doing some drills.
