MyBB Yale series or single game?
Watching Ivy League championship game (Ivy alum) and occured to me - was the Yale game this year a single game or a series?

Would love to see us play Yale in person next year if it's ongoing.

I thought it was a one shot deal that Hardaway scheduled to tough up this year's slate. I haven't seen anything about a return game.

Yeah that's what I thought unfortunately. Would love to see us get a series going with either Harvard, Yale or Penn. Solid programs with good coaches and would be good to get our guys out to experience those cities/campuses

Nothing good can come from playing @ Yale...

Maybe to computers but no value in the mind of the committee. Too much risk too little reward.

I mean sure.. nothing good except our players getting to experience a world class academic institution and campus, maybe make some connections with a new set of future global and business leaders.. maybe make the short hop to NYC as well and spend time in a global tier 1 city

From this year on if a game @Yale makes or break us we aren't living up to expectations anyway

To each his own...

I doubt walking on the campus of Yale and playing against Yale players is going to be that valuable to basketball players.

Exactly I have walked on UTKs and Ole Miss's campus and it didn't give me the urge to have relations with my sister/cousin. The campus doesn't rub off on you.

You didn't drink enough Rebel Yell for breakfast. At lunch you shift to Wild Turkey. Evening you call your sister.

Uh how about no... If we are gonna do a conference challenge it should be either the Big East or the Pac-12. Playing against any other weaker conference does us(Memphis) or the AAC no good. The point of those challenges are to provide the schools with resume building oppurtunities.
