This is very tough on freshmen. No "warmup' non-conference games or even scrimmages before jumping in to conference play. Lots of pressure for the rookies on all teams. It could be be a bit ugly, but it's the same for all teams.

There may be OOC games between Nov.26 and our MAAC open Dec. 8th.
I would expect schools in close proximity.

Time for clarity on upcoming MBB season assuming we continue to have good results regarding the virus on campus.
Dateline today: "Looking at non-con in NY and maybe Pa".
That is from as high a source you can get.
Hope this clears up question raised by some of our wonderful participants and NU supporters.

Thanks jhart, Makes sense not to rush into conference play and allow a couple of OOC games. I would think the coaches would have been united in wanting that. Maybe play vs. St Francis, PA< Gannon, LeMoyne, UB?

I think St Francis(Pa), Colgate, St Bonaventure plus games in Youngstown were already on the schedule. What won’t likely happen were games at and against Ohio State and Xavier.

The problem is that they were the “money games” for the schedule. NU will be hemorrhaging money this year with no fans and extra expenses for Covid precautions.. Can’t wait for the return to normalcy for NU and society.

Patriot League will only play conference games this season. No OOC games. The military schools can file an exemption. Seeing a lot of tournaments pop up using bubbles but haven't seen NU linked to any of them. Scheduling games has to be a nightmare this year.
