Summit vs. Horizon Men's Basketball "Showdown"

Recommended Posts

This is FANTASTIC news for ORU and the Summit League; I'm frankly surprised the Horizon League is agreeing to it, since they are perennially the higher-ranked conference comprised of so many former Mid-Con/Summit schools...

Excellent news!  And two games (home and away) for each of the three seasons - spectacular!

This is pretty big for the league. Much better than the current WAC deal.

These recent mid-major alliances may be indicative of how the new "quadrant" scheduling parameters are affecting the non-conference landscape.

Bigger schools will be scheduling each other a lot more than in the past; leaves fewer spots in November and December for as many "guarantee" games with mid- and low-majors.

Schools like Arkansas and Syracuse, which for decades have sat at home before Christmas playing their "bum-of-the-week" schedule of guarantee opponents, will now be playing more intersectional games vs. similar Power 7 schools in order to enhance their at-large NCAA profiles.

The little guys gotta find somebody to play, home and away - this is one way to do it.

Not bad at all.  I'd rather do a Summit/Missouri Valley package as those schools are closer!.
