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.
Coach Wright said they are working on one last contract - before they release the schedule

Well...like leatherneckcountry said...not very exciting. On the plus side, we should have a good home record by the time conference season starts. Also, all of the teams except Iowa Wesleyan are from Illinois (and Iowa Wesleyan is actually the second closest to us out of all of them behind Knox...being only about a 90 minute drive away). Maybe we'll do ok bringing in visiting fans for some of these.

I'm just saying I've lived in Illinois my whole life and this is the 1st I've heard of Dominican University I get that it's not easy getting teams to want to come play here but come on. At least the game with north park is part of a Double header so one ticket for the 2 games.

I'm not disagreeing....just trying to look for the bright spot. Image

If I did the math right, our non-exhibition non-conference home game opponents have a combined 35-108 record from the 2017-18 season. That said, it is still an upgrade over bringing in teams from the NCCAA (Christian-affiliated) conferences which we have seen in the past.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

What a difference between the men's team and the women's team. The men's schedule is packed with lesser oppents while JD got Mizzou to come to Western Hall.

This is essentially a DIII home schedule. I wonder if any students will show up to watch all of these schools that nobody has even heard of.
