ODU run out of money or something? A very regional non conf. schedule...

ODU has always had a regional-heavy schedule since moving to CUSA, with a bunch of games against former CAA teams — VCU, Richmond and William & Mary every season, JMU, Towson, George Mason and Georgia State mixed in as well — and a few MEAC teams as tomato cans. It saves a bit of money but it's also a way to appease fans upset that they lost the regional games from the CAA days, plus they draw pretty well (particularly the Virginia schools).

What it is, is not a particularly strong OOC (VCU had coach/player turnover, Richmond is down, and the Charleston Classic is largely made up with teams about as good as ODU). Short of a 27-win season and competitive loss to a top-2 CUSA team in the final, no shot at an at-large bid at all.

So no mirrored scheduling ? If so -- that is great news

No mirrored scheduling. It is an attempt to strengthen conf rpi. Gives the lower programs a chance to schedule 2 winnable games and the upper programs two rpi building games.

Confirmed by D'Antoni this morning at practice Marshall will play Gonzaga and Washington State, not Washington next season 18-19.

You are allowed 4 hours a week with the team over the summer now (starting this year, surprised you didn't know that), 2 hours on the court. Dan has taken one hour two times a week to use as practice. The returning players have been dismissed for the summer and its only newcomers on the court right now. The full team will return together in the middle of Aug. Two of Marshall's international players are home right now in Milan Mijovic and Ajdin Penava.

As I said all returners have been dismissed but Elmore has stayed and goes to every practice still. All of the other returners are still on campus and in summer school. And they are all in the Henderson Center at least 3-4 time a week practicing on their own.

I actually like that schedule a lot. No real RPI killers besides UMES.

That @Fairfield game is an interesting one, as I grew up going to a lot of Fairfield games. They should be pretty decent this year.

From the Rice side, Louisiana Tech does show big, but UTEP and UTSA bring even larger visiting crowds to Rice. And now we traded Southern Miss and Louisiana Tech for UTEP and UTSA. Wish we could somehow play everyone from the football West home and home.

And Rice swaps Old Dominion/Charlotte home and home for the Florida twins. I guess this is ok for Pera's first year. With two games each against FIU, FAU, UTSA, and North Texas, Rice might even surprise some people and get to .500 this year.

UTEP I can believe but UTSA.... Their away crowds must be more than their home games, I went to a Tech-UTSA game in SA and there was 500 fans there tops. Hardly no support at all for UTSA basketball

Probably a lot of the UTSA alums who like basketball move to Houston after graduation. It's a stronger basketball town after all.
