VERY challenging schedule:

Who predicted that Canisius would come to Lewisburg???

BTW, I might try to make it up to Vermont. That would be fun.

Something that jumps out about the schedule is 39 days between home games from Monmouth on 12/1 and Army on 1/9.

.500 would be a good record against this group. As the press release states, six of the nine were at least 21 game winners and seven of the nine had winning records. Looking forward to the St. Bonaventure game and Ohio State game.

The first OOC game and the last represent an interesting combination - at Olean NY and at Honolulu.

Res may tell you that they are equally attractive trips. .

Far be it from me to make any false equivalencies. The former offers one a good, sometimes great college basketball atmosphere together with the opportunity to spend Christmas at home. The latter? Not so much. If you want to hit the beach at the Yuletide, I would suggest Honolulu.

To each his own.

res, having lived in Southern California for a few years, my sons and I would take a hike just north of Malibu near Point Mugu followed by a cold yet welcome plunge in the ocean before driving home for Christmas Eve dinner. Warm weather over the holiday season is not entirely bad.

My post was, at least partly, tongue-in-cheek. But, in any event, I have no problem with warm weather Christmas sites. My point was not that I wanted to be in a cold weather location but that I'd rather be home at Christmas than not, ceteris paribus.

Having lived in Florida since 2002, you get used to christmas tree lights on palm trees, taking a walk after dinner when it is 64 degrees, and not worrying about inclement weather impacting travel plans.

Besides, if the team only does it once every four years so each class gets the experience, I think that's a positive for the guys.

Question: I don't recall the women doing Holiday tournaments. Does women's hoops not have them?

The women's team will be doing what I think is their first European trip in August. Going to Berlin, Prague, and Vienna for a total of ten days. One issue with these trips is that they are financed by donations from alums and friends of the program. The men's program has some donors who step up with significant donations. Other programs don't have the same level of support.

Don't forget the parades of lighted boats on the Intracoastal Waterway

Yes Bison 54. Downtown Jacksonville has done fireworks which I refer to as "snowing" in Florida. If it ever really did snow here the state would shut down and Publix stores would be looted.

  • Bison137 Said:
For those who are interested, this is where the seven possible Diamond Head opponents were ranked last year by Pomeroy:

Charlotte (CUSA) 308
Colorado (PAC12) 114
Hawaii (Big West) 212
Indiana State (MVC) 138
Rhode Island (A10) 52
TCU (Big 12) 24
UNLV (MWC) 107

My guess is that you will see the Bison facing TCU or URI in the first round. The first round losers then slide over into a four-team bracket for their last two games. If the Bison end up in that bracket, likely opponents for the second and third game would be Charlotte, Hawaii, and maybe Indiana State.





According to Jon Rothstein, who usually has reliable info, the Bison will face URI in the first round of the Diamond Head Classic.

Just out of curiosity, our RPI was better than five other teams in the field and we play URI in the first game?

RPI must not have been factored into the “seedlings” then.

I believe URI lost four starters (as well as their coach) from last year's team. Their lone returning starter (Dowtin) is a solid player and may make one of the pre-season All A-10 teams.

That said, it's likely that preseason projections will have URI finishing in the middle of the pack (maybe even lower half) of the A-10 this upcoming season.

This year’s Bison team has me excited and scared at the same time. I think Avi, Kimbal and Sotos will be the best backcourt in the PL.

Backcourt should definitely be good. They will have to be really good to beat out Lehigh for #1 in that category, with LU returning seniors Lance Tejada and Kyle Leufroy plus junior PG Jordan Cohen. I expect LU to be picked for 1st in the preseason poll.
