Basketball scheduling announced

Postby winwave » Thu Jun 08, 2017 1:12 pm

Each school will play 7 conference teams twice. As to the other 4 you get two at home and two on the road. We get Cincy and UCONN as our two that we play only once and at home:

Interesting article on the scheduling by the AAC:

I can usually find information on a lot of our OCC opponents before the schedule is released. But this year I have found nothing other than the 2 officially announced- Fla State and UNC.

Scheduling in the AAC matches seven schools picked to have similar success in two-game series in order to help power rankings (RPI) and create matchups for TV. Teams play a single game against the four remaining schools to minimize the effects of bad teams on the RPI.


No doubt about figuring out where we fall in terms of the good teams or bad teams in the conference w/r/t scheduling.

So far:

Home: Cincinnati, UConn, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, USF, SMU, Temple, Tulsa

Road: UNC, FSU, UCF, Wichita State, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, USF, SMU, Temple, Tulsa

So we're looking at maybe 3/4 wins at home. Best case scenario 2/3 wins on the road? At best 7/8 wins out of 20?

It's gonna be real interesting to see what the rest of OOC looks like. Remember just a couple seasons ago the Ed Conroy/CUSA bball schedules?!

Are we in any pre-season/mid-season tourneys this year?

I had forgot about how terrible we were last year. Only 6 wins in 31 try's. That was the worst record since the first year Perry brought the program back from the dead with 4 wins but that was understandable. Dunleavy has to win at least 12 games to show progress IMO. I wouldn't consider 8-10 wins progress because last year we should have won that many had the bench coaching been better.

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee is altering its definition of a quality win, placing greater emphasis on winning road games by changing the team sheets that include the results of every team being evaluated for selection and seeding for the men’s basketball championship. The group also committed to continue studying various metrics the committee has at its disposal to evaluate teams, with the likelihood of a new metric being in place for the 2018-19 season.

Will make it tougher for Tulane because now we won't get good money road games. The better teams will want to schedule road games with each other.
They are following the baseball model which did this a few seasons ago. You get more RPI value out of road wins.

Playing Colorado State in addition to FSU.

In addition to hosting in-state rival Colorado, the Rams will play a neutral-court game against Florida State. The Seminoles went 26-9 last season and earned a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament but lost their top three scorers, Dwayne Bacon, Jonathan Isaac and Xavier Rathan-Mayes. The game against FSU will be played in Jamaica as part of a multi-team event that will also include a neutral-court matchup with Tulane and home games against Winthrop and Northwestern State.
