That's awesome. Rumor has been for the last year or so that GCU will be starting up a series with Illinois at some point, too. Mr. Colangelo is alumni.

NMSU is also supposed to be in the Diamond Head Classic next season and they have a road basketball game with Kentucky as part of our past football deal with UK (the year has yet to be determined). But who knows, that games could also become a reality next season?

RE: NMSU vs Illinois 2017/2018
NMSU will have a chance to be a elite team next year if we can win some of these games. The teams in the field at the Diamond Classic are:

1. Miami - 20-10 - ACC
2. USC - 23-8 - PAC10
3. Akron - 24-7 - MAC
4. M.Tenn - 27-4 - CUSA
5. NMSU - 25-5 - WAC
6. Davidson - 15-14 - A-10
7. Utah State - 13-16 - MWC
8. Hawaii - 14-15 - Big West

I hope we open up with Akron or Middle Tennessee.

That would be fun. It's just sad that Utah State refuses to ever play NMSU in Las Cruces. They couldn't handle the rowdiness of the Panamaniacs.
