Summit League released the conference schedule. I updated the first post with what we know so far: viewtopic.php?p=15966#p15966

EDIT - I just noticed...lots of "combined travel", which I think is awesome. It's easier for a lot of fans, I think, and it should save some money on travel arrangements as well.
12/28 - Both (M&W) teams play SDSU in Macomb
12/30 - Both teams play Denver in Macomb
1/5 - Both teams play at Oral Roberts
1/19 - Both teams play Ft. Wayne in Macomb
1/26 - Both teams play at South Dakota
2/7 - Both teams play at Fort Wayne
2/16 - Both teams play South Dakota in Macomb
2/23 - Both teams play Oral Roberts in Macomb
2/28 - Both teams play at Denver
3/2 - Both teams play at South Dakota State

Also, with the exception of the games on December 28th, all of the home "doubleheaders" for us are on the weekend (most on Saturdays...12/30 is a Sunday).

I put both schedules together on one calendar and you can view that here: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/em ... %2FChicago (advance it to November to see the start of the season)

The Twitter message about the NIU game says that it will be in Chicago. But the banner above it says that it will be in DeKalb.

I'd guess they meant DeKalb. Maybe whoever was posting it thinks of DeKalb as the "Chicago Area" or something. idk...I asked on twitter, so I'll let you know what I hear.

EDIT - ok, so it looks like they took down the previous tweet and put this one up instead:

Jacks board saying the Dauminator is sporting a leaner look for the upcoming season. If the 7% body fat compared to about 20% last season is true, he is likely to be quicker and more agile, in a better postion to tune his game for the next level. But 7% seems a bit extreme to me. There are some risks associated with it.

Show up early. BYOH (Hammock). Game on Wednesday. This could be a cheap roundtrip Tuesday and Thursday fly-in. Unbelievable. Travelocity is showing me $137 roundtrip Dulles to Orlando. I have not seen that in like 25 years. Moline and Peoria around $300 RT.

I made sure to send the info about the game to a friend of mine who lives down there. He's a former mellophone player and drum major of the Marching Leathernecks (http://www.justincdavismusic.com/bio.html) and also happens to be the band director at Astronaut HS in Titusville, FL, only about an hour from Deland.

Men's BB has not announced its 2018-2019 schedule yet. The Women have had theirs out for quite a while. Must still be working on the non-conference games.
