No idea, other than one of their players having been a HS teammate of Ryan Frazier. Just to clarify, the Bison have actually played Vermont twice - but both games were in Lewisburg.



You're right, but I think both were neutral site games.

Yes my mistake. Played them at Marist and at Mohegan Sun tournament.

That has to be it. VT A 13 seed iirc, beat Uconn earlier that evening. Our win (14 vs. 3) actually may have taken some of the spotlight from them.

And since Vermont came earlier in the evening, they got disproportionate media attention.

Bingo, though it was vs. Syracuse. Vermont won in OT 60-57 for their first and only tournament win. Made two 3's in the last couple minutes to take the lead. Syracuse missed a last second 3 to tie. Another coincidence, the game was played in Worcester and Holy Cross was the official host.

"...Sorrentine hit that one from the parking lot!" (Gus Johnson, 1:12 left in OT) Stuff of legends.

Vermont coach: “For our fans, and our players, I wish we had more home games for sure. It’s really disappointing, but there is nothing I could do,” Becker said. “No one wants to play here at all. I apologize to our fans. We really tried."

Article also notes that our series is a 3 year deal. Bucknell gets another home game in 2019

Wow, it that's accurate, it's a real coup for the Bison.

CBS Sports basketball analyst Jon Rothstein on Bucknell's schedule:

"Bucknell should be one of the top mid-major teams next season, but Bison head coach Nathan Davis might have gone overboard with his non-conference schedule. Before Patriot League play, Bucknell will travel to North Carolina, Arkansas, Maryland, VCU, Saint Joseph’s, Richmond, and Monmouth while hosting La Salle and America East favorite Vermont. Crazy!"

As tough as the Bison OOC schedule is - and it is one of the top few in the nation - it won't be #1 in that category. Here is the newly-released Texas Southern OOC schedule:


at Gonzaga

at Washington State

at Ohio State

at Syracuse

at Kansas

at Clemson

at Oakland

at Toledo

at Oregon

at Baylor

at Wyoming

at TCU

at BYU

No home games, are they trying to fund their entire athletic program??

Yes. A number of the HBCU schools do this to some extent - but rarely at this level. Texas Southern last year also played all,13 OOC games on the road, but it was not as strong a schedule as this year.

Btw, their head coach is Mike Davis- who has been working his way down in the world. He was the successor at Indiana to Bobby Knight when Knight was fired. Then Davis went to UAB after being fired at Indiana. Then went to TX Southern after UAB fired him.

Following up on the above, the ten teams in the SWAC had a grand total of 9 D1 OOC home games last year.

That's a sad way to finance athletics for students. We've really lost our way in higher education funding. Sorry, I'm editorializing.

reports that Demetrius Henry has left LaSalle's team to pursue professional opportunities. was likely their starter at center.

I wonder if either 1. He really needs money, or 2. He was having academic issues.

apparently neither.. here is his version of situation, assume a Giannini interview might sound a bit different:

Henry explained the basis for his opinion and actions very well. Personally, I am very torn over how and when student-athletes should or should not take a social stand. It would be interesting to hear Coach Giannini's side of the story.

This era seems to have a lot of similarities to the late-60s/early-70s except coaches back then did not have social media to deal with. Not that it has ever been easy to be a head coach, but being one now must be difficult.
