    Re: Porter and ODU - there will be no one on our team next year that Porter has likely ever met (coaches or players), no reason why we can't schedule them.

    Re: next year's schedule - anyone know how the conference matchups will go? Trying to figure out if we have a game at Umass next year - have friends in Boston to visit.

    No major names but they will still be challenging games especially in the Riviera Division.

    Frenso state is still alive in the mountain west tourney. Have a rpi of 74. 18-11 record.

    Louisiana tech is still alive in conference USA. 105 rpi- 21-9 record.

    I'd love to play ODU too. ODU came to EBA when Jonathan Arledge was on the team. Is there some sort of rule about playing against a regular transfer opposed to a 5th year graduate transfer?

    Five Two,

    I assume that you have insider information on this.

    There are no rules about playing a team based on who is on he roster. I think Five two either knows or is assuming this based on a "bad blood" situation, not a rule.

    Based on travel, it would make sense if the Cancun Challenge sends Binghamton and SE Missouri State to Fairfax. Both terrible RPIs. As long as those are our 2 cupcakes for the year (in place of Longwood and Prairie View), I think I'm ok with that.

    If Binghamton plays Mason, it will be a reunion of sorts for the coaching staff with JC Show.

    Show was the player of the year in PA as a senior in HS and played his freshman season at Bucknell during DP's last year at Bucknell.

    Show transferred to Binghamton right around the time that DP left for Mason.

    IIRC, the coach at Binghamton and Show's father are very good friends (Show's father was a college hoops coach for several years) and Binghamton was a little closer to home. Show also had some injury issues during his freshman season at Bucknell that limited his playing time. When healthy, he was an effective player in the Patriot League his freshman season. He was injured for much of his redshirt soph season at Bing this year.

    Show went down early in the year at Binghamton - I'm pretty sure he led the team in scoring at the time of his injury.

    St Peters and Vermont is considering "beefing" up your OOC schedule? What is that writer smoking. Dumb article.

    Vermont is a pretty consistently good mid-major team: NCAAs in 2010, 2012, 2017; NIT in 2011 and 2014 -- that's 5 legit post-seasons in the last 8 years. I'm not sure who they return, but they were a good team last year.

    So who do you guys think are the top 4 teams as of now? I think we are in the top 4. In the mix is Rhode island, st joes, us, VCU, and St. Louis. Missing anyone?

    Don't think I'd go that far for next year yet. Add St. Bonaventure to the list.

    I believe Vermont has everyone coming back from this season's team. That's a quality game.

    St. Peter's, though... ew.

    I'd be surprised if we were top 4.

    Rhodes Island
    St. Joes
    St. Bonnies
    Davidson, maybe (lose Gibbs, but still have Peyton Aldridge and has 4 star PG Kellan Grady coming in).

    VCU and Dayton I'm sure will be in the mix even though their roster turnover is really high.

    Both vcu and Dayton are running with new coaches so who knows. Both also have a lack of PG right now.

    A10 talk is a VCU blog. We landed a UVA transfer and the only thing they posted/tweeted was some hairbrained idea about having an east coast and west coast division of the A10 that doesn't play each other.

    It's actually run by two freshmen at Davidson.
