A game we should win, but ODU is a solid enough mid-major that can spring an upset if we mess around.

Like the opponent, don't like the date. We were hoping that the Georgetown game would be slotted here.

Not sure how common it is in basketball, but a two for one like football would have been awesome. Would love to see Cuse playing in Norfolk at the Ted.

need more games like this. Honestly think playing UB and St. Bona during the non conference helped us so much
Without a doubt.

Our scheduling was phenomenal given how strong it was compared to what other teams were playing and we didn't risk losing 2 games in 3 days at a neutral site tournament that easily could have happened with this years team given how young everyone was. The previous year our cupcakes were so easy and we shredded them so bad that we were sitting ducks for motivated mediocre Gtown and St Johns teams that we expected to roll over. All the MAC schools we played gave us enough of a scare that we had to buckle down and play our best ball in the 2H to not lose.

If we squeeze by the Bonnies and don't collapse against ND and Wake the team likely gets a 4-5 seed due to SOS and might have even lucked into the other side of the bracket and ran through the Michigan/Loyola pods.

ODU is a good team to schedule. Only issue really is if it bumps a 'better' non conference opponent like Georgetown to midweek.

I guess they sought out you folks when the contract with us fell apart. There is even a disagreement over whether there was an agreement to play each other to begin with. :oops:
