Media markets do not mean what they used to for conference affiliation, but being in BFE means you cannot get real teams to come to your campus. Something to think about if we start to realign geographically.


Actually has nothing to do with getting “real teams” to come to Hattiesburg. Just Doc Sadler continuing the USM “cupcake” tradition started by Larry Eustachy. In addition to SBC, Southern Miss will play NAIA William Carey (Hattiesburg, MS), D-III Millsaps (Jackson, MS), and NAIA Rust (Holly Springs, MS).



FINALS - November 6th

Chattanooga 80

LA Tech 71

UAB 75

UT Permian Basin 63


WKU 55
#25 Washington 73

Toppers actually led 36-27 at halftime.


In the past we just made sure we all bought in the same section. I’m trying to decide if I want to go through the pain up there again.


Yeah I am, but decided last night not to go to any other road games. Was looking forward to going up to Winston-Salem, not now.


As mentioned earlier in this thread, FAU, FIU, Marshal, and UTSA tip off their respective seasons today.

League was 8-2 last night and since three of four tonight are versus non-D-I, should be in double digit wins after the openers.


FWIW, heralded WKU frosh Charles Bassey had 11 pts, 12 rebs, 2 blocks and 2 steals in his college debut vs Washington. On the negative side, only 1-4 on FTs and fouled out in 28 minutes of action.


C-USA goes 11-3 in openers. And way to go Roadrunners! :roll_eyes:

FINALS - November 7th

Florida Tech 52
FAU 98

Webber International 84
FIU 110

Marshall 105
Eastern Kentucky 77

St. Edward’s 77



In addition to LA Tech’s opening day win over Wichita State and the Niners comeback over OK State, C-USA can add the following victories over major conference opponents in today’s action:

FAU 80
UCF 79

Southern Miss 74
SMU 64

FAU win particularly surprising since UCF the preseason pick to win the AAC.



First C-USA players of the week (11-12-2018):

Jon Davis, SR 6-3 G, Charlotte - POTW

Charles Bassey, FR 6-11 C, WKU - FOTW
