I have not looked up all the NET rankings of the opponents, but it seems like Monmouth and Iona are the two strongest opponents on the nonconference schedule. Creampuff schedule. Maybe appropriate with the loss of Llewellyn and Wright and Friberg, but a little disconcerting to see.

(Especially in the context of the gauntlet Coach Berube has created for her team.)

It's got to be tough for Princeton since no one wants to play them, especially in Princeton. Most Ivies take a couple of pay games

Playing that Bible College is the bottom of the barrel. Better to scrimmage the practice squad.

I love it when there is a school I never even heard of that is less than 20 miles from my house.

Princeton's NET last year was 107, out of 358 MBB teams. This year's schedule:

Iona 89
Hofstra 112
Delaware 134
Monmouth 140
YALE 149
Drexel 154
Navy 174
Marist 210
PENN 213
Umbc 233
Manhattan 249 or Northeastern 251
Army 279
Lafayette 319

...plus the two D-3 games.

Compare that to the WBB (last year NET of 20) gauntlet of UConn (4), Texas (7), Buffalo (64), URI (67), Villanova (70), Fordham (72), Towson (84), Seton Hall (87), Delaware (98), COLUMBIA (104), Rutgers 115, HARVARD 117, Temple 118, YALE 161, PENN 167, Maine 190, etc. I think each team has scheduled based on its personnel and needs, but the contrast is striking.

They describe themselves as offering a diverse Christian education, so clearly they teach both Old and New Testaments.

I wouldn't assume that the MBB schedule quality reflects on the expectations for the team. Over the last few years they have made West Coast trips to ASU, USC, and OSU during the Christmas break, but with the Ivy League season starting on 12/31 now, I can understand why they skipped a December West Coast trip. And once they committed to the London trip over Thanksgiving, there aren't many travel opportunities left. Of course, no Power 5 team wants to play at Princeton.

I think Princeton would love to have games against Rutgers and Seton Hall, for example, but those teams are reluctant to sign up.
