    Rothstein tweeted this morning that Xavier will be hosting Lehigh this coming season. Really like this game.

    Spoke to Coach Reed today and can announce that, in addition to opening the year at Xavier, we’ll be traveling south this year to face the Red Wolves of Arkansas State (Jonesboro….home of KR) and the Bulldogs of Mississippi State (Southeast Conf). Additional road games will include: Yale, Mt. St. Mary’s, and Stony Brook. We’ll welcome Francis (Pa), and Robert Morris to Stabler. More to come, I’m sure.

    Thanks 65. Seems slightly less daunting so far than last year. Interesting tho for a non maven like me.

    LaSalle would be great as a series. Building an OOC with some very interesting more local teams.

    1. Any chance La Salle comes to Stabler next year?
    2. last year we had 11 OOC games, which means well see 1 more road game and the tune up home game( Roch College, Mount alto etc)

    Don’t count on LaSalle returning the favor the following year. That’s just the way it is.

    Wow, lot of info. As it stands now, Princeton is going to be VERY good next year. That is a fun home game. Trying to summarize this a bit visually:

    Home
    Princeton
    Robert Morris
    St. Francis (PA)

    Road
    Xavier
    Miss St
    Arkansas State
    Stony Brook
    Yale
    Mount St. Mary’s
    LaSalle

    Columbia and Canisius were two other road games last year. Would be nice if at least one more of those series was continuing for another decent home game.

    SB, I can only assume we had a “home ‘n home” two-year commitment(2013-2014 and 2014-2015) with each Columbia and Canisius. That said, I would imagine we will pick up an 11th game.

    Great info.

    Not as much sizzle, but a lot of winnable games.

    LaSalle was terrible this past year, only won 9 games overall.

    Arkansas St was also terrible in the Sun Belt, only won 11 games overall.

    So, those are games we could easily win. Glad to see a Big 5 team on the schedule for the first time since the Nova game in Allentown and the away St. Joe’s game a few years back.

    Stony Brook will be way down, lost coach, and Jamal Warney and Carson Puriefoy will have graduated. Another winnable game.

    Yale and Princeton may be 2 best teams in the Ivy next year, so they will be tough.

    Even Miss St was pretty bad this year, near bottom of SEC and under .500.

    Would like to see us play .500 basketball or better in the OOC.

    How does the upcoming OOC Schedule shape-up in terms of expected difficulty when compared to the schedules announced prior to the two most recent campaigns?

      Heading into 2016-‘17

    Opponent’s prior year combined W/L Record / Winning Percentage: 170-144 / .541
    KenPom’s Composite Ranking of our announced opponents following the close of 2015-16 play: 166.0*

      Heading into 2015-‘16

    Opponent’s prior year combined W/L Record / Winning Percentage: 196-128 / .605
    KenPom’s Composite Ranking of those opponents following the close of 2014-15 play: 124.9

      Heading into 2014-‘15

    Opponent’s prior year combined W/L Record / Winning Percentage: 166-155 / .517
    KenPom’s Composite Ranking of those opponents following the close of 2013-14 play: 181.0

    * Lehigh ended the year ranked 171st by KenPom. Makes you think, as ‘lehigh90’ mentioned above, that playing .500 basketball or better in upcoming OOC play is a realistic goal
