RE: 2017 non-conference opponents
So far...

Cal State Bakersfield is participating in the Great Alaska Shootout; with Alaska Anchorage, Cal Poly, College of Charleston, Central Michigan, Sam Houston State, Idaho, and Santa Clara.

UM Kansas City is participating in the Gulf Coast Showcase; with Florida Gulf Coast, Manhattan, Georgia Southern, Missouri State, Penn, Northern Illinois, Towson.

New Mexico State is participating in the Diamond Head Classic; with Hawaii, Davidson, Miami (FL), Middle Tennessee, Princeton, USC, and Akron.

Seattle U. is participating in the regional round of the 2k Sports Classic against Washington and the sub-regional round (in Nashville, TN) with Detroit Mercy, Houston Baptist, and Belmont.

Chicago State is participating in the campus preliminary games of the Battle 4 Atlantis against Purdue and Northern Iowa and the regional games (in Baltimore, MD) with UMBC, Presbyterian, Nicholls State.

Grand Canyon is participating on the Valley of the Sun Shootout against St. John's.

One game I find interest is GCU plays Morgan State at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas (Dec. 27th). Is there any particular why that game is played there?

Majerle wanted to give the players a feel for the routine for the WAC Tournament. From the hotel they are staying at to playing on the court.

I guess it's a smart move by Majerle and a program which has money to burn. When you consider the player turnover on some of the WAC rosters, it might give the Lopes a familiarity with environment come March. Considering NMSU only returns five players from last season's tournament championship team; the WAC tournament & Vegas will be new experience for our new head coach and his revamped Aggie roster.
