I realize we aren't going to schedule all top 25 teams for OOC, but IMO it diminishes our brand playing so many "meh" teams. Temple is ok...VCU is ok...Cal is a F5 school that rarely matters in hoops, Georgia Tech is a good game. All I see are GT and Duke so far to really prove anything nationally. If this were last year when the Big East was insanely hard, I'd be more understanding. What some aren't realizing is we will not have as many ranked teams in conference next season and thus less chances to pick up great wins and build a resume. The fact that Seton Hall is playing Kentucky at MSG and not us is ridiculous. If we can't get a good opponent for the Holiday Festival then cancel it. They will never make any money off it if they keep featuring dud opponents. Not saying it has to be UNC but at least a known brand nationally would be nice.

You do realize that 99% of teams have a similar OOC schedule every year. Everybody schedules a couple big name schools to drive up their SOS and a bunch of middle to lower tier schools. Why schedule all tough games and eliminate yourself from the NCAA’s before conference play?

Make the top four Big East teams play two Big 10 teams each. Then everyone is involved and even if they lose, our best teams at least have a strength of schedule boost come tournament time.

Our overall SOS last year was #7. It makes no sense to add a number of more difficult games just to get our SOS to #2 or #3. This is just complaining to complain.

St. Arnulf of Metz - Bishop & member of the court of the Frankish king Theodebert II of Austrasia. A noble, Arnulf married Doda & their son was Ansegisel. Ansegisel married Beggia, the daughter of Pepin of Landen, starting the Carolingian dynasty.

St. John's will host Mount St. Mary's as part of its 2018-19 non-conference schedule, per a source. #SJUBB

Hopefully this is an exhibition game against this D3 team.:whistle:

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Someone should inform Mount St. Mary's that they apparently were removed from D-I's Northeast Conference and placed in D-III without their knowledge.

18-14 last year, but that was with one of the nation's top scorers, Junior Robinson, who will be lost to graduation.

Talk about having no class balance. Everybody on the team except one player last year, was either a Senior or a Freshman.

There is a Mt. St. Mary's that plays D3 in Newburgh, NY. That's probably who Class of 72 was thinking of, but I'm pretty sure we'll be facing the guys from Maryland.
