Decent teams but sure seems geographically odd!

Other than ISU all the opponents so far have NET lower than the Huskies.

GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So how many of us die hard basketball fans can name the state Longwood University is located?

Nice to see a college basketball team name itself after Dog Fan.

Thanks very much for the compliment, but it was actually the Short Line Railroad that was named after me. After that, I swore I’d never again board a train with my zipper down.

Date set for Oakland.

Nov 12 @ Iowa State

Nov 25 vs. Oakland

Dec 21 vs. Wisconsin-Green Bay

And then the DeKalb tournament with Pacific, UC-Riverside and Longwood, probably the weekend before or after Thanksgiving.

That's a good point. And actually since we've got Pitt the Monday of Thankgiving week it probably won't be that prior weekend either but the weekend of Nov 16th.

Maybe two games in DeKalb. Northern Iowa here in early November?

Northern Iowa has 3 teams that advanced in the NCAA Tournament this decade, including one that knocked off a 33-2 Kansas team en route to the Sweet 16. 2 of those teams finished ranked top 25.

They've been down the last few years but that would be a big get. They're expected to be better this year.

Progress over the past 20 years with the UNI/NIU confusion from announcers/refs will be undone in 1 basketball game.

Having that said, that would be a great home opponent to have.

RE: Any word on basketball opponents?
Well the season ticket package comes with the home nonconference schedule so I can add a few:

Nov 5 (Exhibition game)
Nov 9 vs Northern Iowa
Nov 12 @ Iowa State
Nov 15 vs Coppin State
Nov 16 vs Rockford
Nov 18 vs Longwood
Nov 25 vs Oakland
Dec 16 @ Pittsburgh
Dec 21 vs Wisconsin-Green Bay

Up to 5 more road games TBA

Interesting to see back to back games and 3 in 4 days at the Convo, although 1 is D3 (Rockford).

RE: Any word on basketball opponents?
Looks like sportsfan was right about the tournament. Looks like Pacific and UC Riverside will play out west and the winner plays Longwood/NIU winner at now unknown site. Even though Huskies lost a lot in Bradley/Thorpe they have better NET ranking (140) than all known opponents except ISU (19) and Pitt (120). Should be a competitive nonconference schedule.

GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's probably the best home schedule since......

A low bar but that has to be the most attractive schedule in a long time for the home slate.
