Western Kentucky game question,
« on: December 01, 2019, 05:16:16 pm »

I hope this hasn't been asked, I didn't see it if it has been.  Why are we playing Western Kentucky at their place?  I know they played here last year, but they are a Sunbelt team and I just found it strange that we would agree to a home and home series with a Sunbelt team.  Do any other major programs play at Western Kentucky or other Sunbelt programs?

Louisville played them two days ago, although at a so-called neutral site.

I'm pretty sure this was part of the deal when we scheduled them for football this year.  They wanted to play us at their place for basketball in exchange.

Western Kentucky is a premiere mid-major program. They have a half dozen Sweet Sixteens and are one of the winningest programs in college basketball history. Should be a fun game.

Won't be easy. Dantez Walton chewed up Bailey and Chaney and sent Cylla back to the bench. It was a white flag moment when Musselman had to throw Jimmy Whitt on him. Hopefully just an off night.

How the Hogs handle Bassey and Trayce Jackson-Davis will tell a lot about how SEC play will go.

The SEC brass wants meaningful games to be scheduled, a road win at WK would help the sec.

WKU has a long history in Basketball.     They were one of the original Sunbelt teams in a basketball only league.

I think MA and Coach Stansbury being friends in the coaching circle probably had something to do with it. This game was scheduled when MA was coach obviously.

Not sure, but itís a great opportunity to resume build.

NIT. Same as I expected two months ago. They beat IU or WKU and I'll start thinking they could make a run at NCAA.

Perhaps the ESPN BPI has, but KenPom.com currently has us a 3 point favorite at WKU.

If that doesn't work, just have Jamario Bell sack him. That ought to slow him down

Itís the same reason we played CSU Home and Home. Itís packaging as part of FB deals.  But even if it wasnít they are a well regarded mid major. Itís not the same as playing straight up buy game like Texas Southern.

The game was @ Wright State and WSU is a really good low-major program. They and Northern Kentucky have traded the Horizon back and forth past few seasons.

Sorry to sound snarky.
I agree that this is an NIT team this season, unless Jamario Bell does his best Marcus Monk

If they're all that then they should have beaten WSU.

I am glad we play them there this year because we need road games for pre-SEC play.
