    I am going to wait to see what away games will be on this platform, but I suspect NBCSN/CBSSN will have plenty of games as it is.

    But, props to the A-10 for adding to their viewing options. The stream was always behind, and lagging which was annoying.

    I'm curious who will be the announcers on ESPN+ only games. Are we going to follow the old model of the home team supplying announcers for the stream?

    I'll miss the St. Joe's announcer's "OH NOOOOOOOOOO" call. :D

    I wish we had 3 of the four away games switched to home. winning at Dayton, URI and St Louis is going to be tough... St Joe's should be good too, but we have already won there

    Look at it this way- if we are as good as we think we'll be, winning @ SLU, @SJU, etc will give us an RPI boost, along with "who did you beat on the road?", etc in the eyes of the committee.
    That doesnt mean it will be easy,

    Were VCU, GW and Richmond locked in as home-and-home? I forget how the A10 determines who we play twice and who we play once.

    I think regional rivals pretty much get a home and home, but I'm not sure if there's a magic formula on who you play twice and who you play once otherwise. Usually the 1 time schools alternate every year, although its interesting that Mason plays at URI again this year, but does a home and home with Bonaventure. I also think in the past they've played Davidson twice, whereas this year they play once.

    It seems like a few of the match ups changed this year, maybe it was done based on how schools did previously and what they project in conference for the upcoming year.

    If St. Louis and Davidson get in the top 4, and we win both of those (as well as other games), that could help in the tie breaker situation. Part of why we got the #5 last season is because of tiebreakers that went our way.

    The flip side to the argument is we lost some easy ones on the road last year. If the easier teams are at home, we should be blowing them out and not dropping games we shouldn't. Win a large majority of home games, and then go and try to grab half the road games and we're in a great position.

    How did URI get us at home two years in a row?

    I believe each school gets to request 3 schools as home-and-homes.

    The Bonnies are actually a great get for home and home. They won't be as good as they were last year, so they'll be beatable twice, but they'll be much better on the RPI than a Fordham or a LaSalle. A middle of the road team that was in the tourney last year and has a good rep is probably the perfect scenario for the final home and home. Kinda done with seeing UMass twice though.
