"Word on the street" says that NIU will play WIU in basketball this upcoming season.

Nothing official released as of yet, but I'm assuming NIU will host the game but not certain about that.

I don't know why they wouldn't try and do a home and home series of games with NIU every year similiar to what is done with EIU. Each team struggles to get home games to begin with, and it isn't like either team selling thousands of tickets. Win, win for both sides.

Nothing has been released officially so this year's game may end up being a part of a home-and-home series. Guess we'll find out when the details are released publicly.

The part of the interview with the NIU BBall coach where he "leaked" this info was centered around NIU having difficulties finding teams to play, so it wouldn't surprise me if the one in-state team NIU was able to schedule involves a home-and-home.
