I believe the hoop series with UNH was tied to the football series that concludes this year, so maybe the series is done. While UNH is generally a poor team, it is close by, and is an easy home and home. Same with Sacred Heart. If those schools were replaced with Bryant and UMass-Lowell, would it be any better? My guess is that there will always be 5-6 OOC games scheduled every year within a 2 hour drive for economic and convenience purposes.

Drop the two that were most recently D-2. That means we keep UNH and Sacred Heart, unless diesel fuel for the Fox Bus surpasses $3.50 per gallon then we go with the closest two, Bryant and UMass Lowell. Simple.😊
Kind of a funny schedule. Four good P6 teams - which is commendable and will test them.
But after that, quite weak - especially for a team returning almost everyone from a championship team. The rest of their schedule, with Pomeroy rankings, is NJIT (184), D3 Cortland (400+), Cal-Northridge (253), McNeese St.(331) or Green Bay (185), Siena (267), Binghamton (332), Niagara (315), Cornell (221), and Columbia (215). No A-10 teams, no MAC teams, no first division Ivy's, no top America East teams, no first division CAA teams, possibly one top four MAAC team. Probably not the best preparation for PL play or for the postseason, especially for a team that has more than enough talent to play a lot of teams in the 75-150 range. Instead they have no opponents at all in that range.

Sources tell me that we open @ Maryland, play the Boca Tourney as above, including @ San Diego (had a big moneyline bet on the Torerros when they upset UConn in the dance!), and home games with Harvard, Northeastern and Fairfield.
