    This tweet is a good place to begin putting the 2018-19 puzzle together.



    Couple of additions:

    In another thread @VAHills said:
    FYI, this probably belongs in its own thread, but it appears the A10 Tourney in Brooklyn next year will be March 13-17. I couldn't find anything official on it, but looking ahead at the NCAA calendar (Dayton games are on 3/19-3/20) and factoring in Elton John is playing Barclays the weekend before (3/8-3/9), these have to be the dates. I went ahead and locked in my hotel room just to be on the safe side.

    And the 2018 Legend's Classic will be November 19 and 20

    Somehow, I knew it would be in the middle of the week but at least I can plan accordingly now

    Yeah, unless the format changes for some reason, March 13-17 are the only reasonable dates for the tournament. I think it's pretty safe to say @VAHills is correct.

    I am not sure how to respond to this home & home news. My first reaction is.....why are the coaches setting up h&h arrangements with CAA teams? Why not buy the game? Then I think.....what is Charleston's rolling RPI? How does this help? If the game is on the weekend I can go to the beach and visit the Moonpie store.

    Why did VCU block Maye and Djonkam from signing with JMU? My guess is that a JMU h&h is on the horizon. Maybe VCU is looking to join the CAA again :roll:

    I've heard for a while that they are on the short list of schools the league considers worthy of a look (should UMass go for football). Charleston will probably continue trying to schedule with A10 members.

    It's interesting to say the least.... undefeated at home this past season. Had a chance to bat Rhody on the Road & Auburn in the NCAA Tourney. Were #57 in RPI according to Real Time RPI. http://realtimerpi.com/college_Men_basketball_rpi2.html

    It is kinda weird we are doing a H&H, instead of just a buy game.... but oh well, gives us all a reason to go to Charleston.

    VCU fans in the CAA: Why won't A-10 teams play us home and home?

    Ha!

    One thing about good mid-majors is that they are not falling over themselves for a buy game against A10 teams. ACC? Yeah, accepting that buy game is more palatable.

    On another note, UVA played a home & home with VCU because it is a solid series. The more I look at this h&h I see it as a solid deal.

    Something about walking a mile with another man's shoe on the other foot but only if it fits.

    Rhoades always said play teams that can win your league. Well charleston wentry 26-8 and went to the ncaa. They also signed a h and h with oklahoma state last week.
