Oops. Just saw the link above – UVA has announced. So who’s left on our projected schedule, that hasn’t announced?September 10, 2015 at 7:25 pm #21646
Did some poking around, and I’m guessing that Stony Brook is the holdup. I don’t see a full official schedule up for them yet.September 10, 2015 at 10:07 pm #21649
Agree and worth repeating, every single year we are among last few schools to put schedule out…it’s frustrating but it is what it is. Atleast the schedule looks like best we have had in years.September 11, 2015 at 3:42 pm #21656
Another one makes it official. We’ll play host to THE MOUNT on Dec. 19th.

FWIW, I’m thinking SB will come to Stabler a few days later.September 11, 2015 at 4:47 pm #21658
You nailed it, 65. We are now on SB’s schedule, as of today. At Stabler on 12/22; you may have to change the “season” filter on this page to “2015-2016”:
Unless we’ve missed something, I suspect we’ll see our schedule shortly.September 11, 2015 at 6:32 pm #21660
So, unless we get an 11th game (the max allowed with 18 League contests scheduled and something I trust our staff has worked on), here it is: the long-awaited and much-anticipated 10-Opponent OOC Schedule for 2015-16. I’ve taken the liberty of adding Conference affiliations, 2014-15 records, and KenPom’s final 2014-15 rankings. I think you’ll all agree the slate below represent a step up in class over the prior year.

Impressive. Will Holba miss entire OOC? Even so,think we will do better than most will expect.September 11, 2015 at 8:07 pm #21663
Love that the staff stepped it up with the schedule this year. I wouldn’t expect an announcement soon though – as hoops mentioned Lehigh is usually among the last schools nationally to announce and I also anticipate a D3 home game that likely isn’t locked in. Would love if it ended up being one more d1 home game but doubt it.
Hopefully the four mid major road games this year will have return games in the contract or series. Those four home games would be a nice start to the schedule for Tim’s Sr year.September 11, 2015 at 9:13 pm #21664
Good question re: Holba, Rich. Truly unknown (at least to me) at this point, but I’m holding out hope that he could see the floor in December. We’ll see.
And I’m in full agreement with Bum and 65 – I really like the OOC schedule, and hope that some of the mid-major games prove to be on-going deals. For reference, we ended up at #196 per KenPom last season.September 12, 2015 at 12:40 am #21667
I would guess Lehigh will add one more game, probably a D3 game, either in the stretch between 12/2 and 12/17 or between 12/22 and the beginning of Patriot League play. My bet is it will be the former but that it will be the latter (with the game being a home game on either 12/27 or 12/28 so I can attend).September 17, 2015 at 11:51 pm #21858
who the heck is Rochester College?September 18, 2015 at 12:05 am #21859
An NAIA private school out in Michigan.September 18, 2015 at 12:12 am #21860

Doc’s home area. Guessing that’s why.
