Gotta assume our team is already in central Florida. Somebody should make a call to Florida Gulf Coast and see if they want to run tonight.

RE: UCF game postponed
Can't we just fly back home and take on Tulane, whose game vs Temple was also postponed? Then rejigger the schedules as necessary?

Well, damn...I was gonna say Bethune Cookman in Daytona, but they've cancelled all sports for the season.

What are "they" going to do when this happens during conference or NCAA Tournament? Forfeit?

Things will be much better by March. (They HAVE to be.)
And I'm sure there will be bubble scenarios similar to what we had in So Dakota, where there were no positive tests once play started.
But, yeah, it's going to have to be a forfeit if it does happen. No other way around it.

For whatever reason, the makeup game is now a home game. Twice in three days.

“The Memphis basketball team will host UCF twice in three days after this week's scheduled road date with the Knights was postponed. 

The Tigers will play UCF at 7 p.m. on Feb. 1, then take on the Knights again 48 hours later  on Feb. 3 at 7 p.m.”

Seeing as how we play at home vs on the road, sounds like a win-win!

I guess it only makes sense, now that I think about it. We can’t absorb the travel costs twice, and sense we have an open date close to the game here > get ‘er done.

RE: UCF game postponed
Not playing Ole Piss and UT and delaying this game and getting two home games out of it, are a really good deal. This puts us in optimal position to improve and make the tournament. I'm not saying we will, but avoiding two probable losses and delaying games while we try to iron out the offense is the best we could have hoped for.

We already traveled there once. They are already going to be here with no additional costs, so it's a smart move. Maybe we subsidize the extra hotel costs. Plus, without fans - or limited at the very best - the home advantage is mostly gone.

I think this type of scheduling could be a thing of the future in college bb. Play UCF here twice in 3-4 days. Then play Tulane twice there. Next year it flip-flops. Would cut travel costs in half, for the post-COVID budgets.
