I can't find any other source for this. Perhaps somebody smarter that I can confirm it.

I think this game is actually part of a new home and home series.  It is being billed as the Kansas City Wildcat Showcase.  Previous versions of this event against Vandy, T A&M and Washington St. were part of a home and home series with KSU shifting their home game to the Sprint Center.

Boston College...meh. I guess if you want an ACC school on the schedule, great. I'd rather have a better program on the schedule personally.

interesting timing, lol

The Ty Graves Invitational - not bad! Anytime you can get a P5 school to agree to a home/home, you take it, because those are increasingly harder to come by.

Today, BC just got a nice commitment from Thornton- the USC grad transfer.

Possibly a "home" game for Hasahn French?

True, but it's Fordham!  I mean, how could you shape your fingers to type that?!

This. It's near impossible to get P6 home and homes with the 20 game conference schedules, we pretty much have to take whatever we can get.

BC was the third opponent (including an exhibition game with UMSL) in Chaifetz Arena. It was a 53-50 grinder but a fun game nonetheless. That was the back end of a home-and-home from the prior season; BC beat us at their place 61-39 in late 2007. Woof.

We played again on a neutral court in 2011, the first of three wins in that Anaheim Classic that we won (Villanova and Oklahoma were the next two wins to seal the title).

Somehow those are the only three times we've ever played BC.

Games against teams in the bottom halves of their power conferences are going to be good for us this coming season. Good for SOS without being beaten up. K-State and Seton Hall are both going to be very competitive in their conferences.

Last season BC finished 11th in the ACC, ahead of last place Pitt.  So at least we are moving up!

We'll have at least five players in the rotation who've never played D-1 ball. BC has a similar talent level but is more experienced. This series is a good fit.

Always good to get another Jebbie school on the schedule. Why is anyone questioning this? Where would we finish this year in the ACC?

Sorry, I looked for this thread but couldn't find it. So, I guess the only non con games locked in at this point are KSU, The Hall, BC, and SIU. Meanwhile other schools are announcing their schedules every day. Can't fathom why it's so difficult for us to get games.

Are these other schools mid-majors?
