Not really. I feel like GCU's schedule doesn't usually drop until July.

EDIT: Looks like 2016-17 schedule dropped on 6/27/16. For 2015-16, home portion of schedule came out on 7/8/15. The full schedule was released on 8/11/15. 2014-15 full release came on July 1.
Ok then U of A must have come out like super early cause I remember sitting at Canes talking with my roommates about making the trip down to Tuscon.

Yeah, I think Majerle spilled the beans to AZ Sports guys in early January last year. I saw the date for the first time probably in March from one of the College hoops guys that breaks hoops news (Goodman/Rothstein/etc). It was all public knowledge before full schedule was released. Kind of like how we already know the doubleheader w/UA is on Dec 5, 2017. (Yes, I have already requested the day off).

There was a time when it was a premier early season tournament. On the positive though it looks very winnable. The other teams are the host Alaska Anchorage, Cal Poly, Central Michigan, College of Charleston, Idaho, Sam Houston State and Santa Clara. By the way anybody know around what time the rest of the non-conference games will be announced? I hope CSUB schedules really good teams again like last year with Arizona and SMU. Two close games until the end.

I agree with the assertion that the GAS shootout used to be one of the premier early season tourneys. Take a look at the list of winners. For years it was a who's who of college basketball royalty. Take a close look a the 1992 winner. 04-jawdrop

In any case, I would love to play in the GAS in any year.

And versus the Great Lou Henson, no less. I hadn't gone to NMSU yet, so that fact was unknown to me till I looked it up today.

Host St. Mary's @ GCU Arena
"Neutral" site v. St. John's @ Suns Arena (part of a doubleheader w/Arizona v. Texas A&M)
Final game of 2-for-1 series @ Louisville
Rumored start of series w/Illinois (assume GCU goes there first; not sure if it's a H/H or 2-for-1)

Guessing GCU will give up a non-D1 game to do a "secret scrimmage", like they did in 2016-17 v. OR ST. I expect we will also see some of the usual suspects from SWAC & MEAC come through. Personally, I'd like to see another game or 2 with BW teams & really want a regular season contest w/NAU.

Maybe Marv is ready to start handing out games to old WAC foes willing to play in Vegas. If so, I don't see if/how GCU wouldn't be into that. Probably too risky for MM at this point, though. Probably needs at least a year or two, so he is certain it'd be a win for his squad.

Impressive lineup. I would kill to see some P5 teams come to the blue court.

No P5 tram would be caught dead in that ugly blue court.

Anyway something I found digging, UCLA will host CSUB on November 29th. Awesome scheduling can't wait for the game.

Glad to see other WAC teams beefing up their schedules! Hope to see NMSU follow that route. I know NMSU will be playing Illinos next season and perhaps Kentucky. I wonder if NMSU could get ASU to play in the Pan Am next season? Since we tied up the series with them with a win in Tempe. I know Arizona came once and we gave them a big scare. Not easy to win in the Pan Am when in full affect.

Illinois is going to be a lot better next year and probably make the tournament. Kentucky would be a massive game. GCU, NMSU and CSUB all seem to schedule tough non conference games, except last year NMSU had a notably easier schedule.

Agreed. I wasn't fooled by Paul Weirs sales tactics that he used here at New Mexico State. I personally was disappointed with the soft scheduling. I am not easily fooled. However, I did enjoy beating a PAC 12 team. Hopefully Jans takes the WSU route and schedule tough opponents and beats them. Seems to have worked for them.
