    Road - New Mexico St, Western Kentucky
    Home - Cal, Harvard, Bucknell

    As an SMC fan, this is the first time in 9-10 years that I can say that I am happy with the schedule and the excuses go out the window. Just wish Bennett would have stepped up over the past 6-7 years. I know it is almost impossible for us to get home games against quality opponents and I appreciate the willingness to get creative and schedule the 4 neutral court games in vegas.
    It's looking good. Thanks are due to your schedulers. Perhaps not getting in the dance last season made them realize that they had to do something.

    Gonzaga started out their 'anyone, anytime, anywhere' and had to play a lot of teams on the road with no home games in return. It was only after they showed that they could win those road games that the national ratings services took note and made it to where a loss to the Zags was not a black mark. Mark Few then was able to get some home and home series and that has morphed into what we are seeing now, the Tarheels, Creighton, Arizona and more.

    As SMC schedules more OCC games, on the road and neutral, against better competition, as they have this year, their scheduling will continue to improve, they will get into the dance and their players will see their own stock rise as national attention shines its light on them.

    Thanks!
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Rumor that Santa Clara visits Haas Pavilion and the Cal Golden Bears this fall... in addition to what I posted before, i.e., hosting USC at home and playing in a tournament with Minnesota, Texas A&M, and Washington up in Vancouver. Pretty decent slate for Santa Clara.

    NMSU is a very tough place to play. SMC can expect a crowd larger than 10K, and they love their Aggies.

    Fond memories of the Pan Am Center, our first “sports date.” We sat in the UTEP section, of course.
