i’m not skerd of the OOC schedule till Davidson. and even then i’m only mildly concerned.

Don’t forget the Wake game in the middle of the schedule they might not be a push over

Portland, third in West Coast Conference

Interesting - usually these guys are WCC cellar dwellars. Might not be so bad on the ole rpi after all. I gotta believe they have a couple of good senior guards, withut even looking at them. Dont think they attract many big men.

Davidson, Fox Sports’ #10 mid-major… [URL=]link: Old Dominion tops among mid-majors[/URL].

Portland was a team that I made some wagers on last year and I believe their top player Jeter was a senior. They played Gonzaga tough a couple of times.
