    A picture is worth 1000 words. That picture about summarized LaSalle hoops.

    They have the single least impressive division one facilities I’ve ever seen in person. Most high schools that I have been to are fairly substantially better.

    When I first moved south after having grown up in Indiana, I lived in Wilmington, N.C. and went to a game at UNCW, which at the time was one of the better teams in the CAA and coached by Jerry Wainright. I was thoroughly confused walking into a college gym it being about the size and character of a non-descript Indiana high school gym. That was my first experience with basketball outside the Midwest.

    I drove up to Valpo to watch the dogs play during the ‘09-‘10 season. Their gym reminded me of a HS gym.

    The thing that was so bad about the la salle gym is that the floor was incredibly slippery. It felt like a middle school gym surface.

    Because I could feel it under my shoes?

    Wonder who we'll replace w/ the Crossroads Classic opponent? For LaVall's sake, he needs another directional school next season

    I'd love to get a game with Notre Dame, ideally a home-and-home but at least a neutral site game, after so many years of being on the opposite side of the Crossroads from them.

    I've never thought scheduling was an issue in the LaVall era. I think he's been striking the right balance in the nonconference season. The problems are elsewhere.

    I mean a lot of the scheduling is made up for him, so short of pulling a Patrick Ewing, it would be hard to screw that up. Other than the Thanksgiving tournaments, I think the only scheduling "win" was a home and home with Florida thus far in his tenure.

    ND would be great but after BU owned them for a period of time they wouldn’t schedule us. Hopefully that will change.

    UIC headed to the MVC...not a bad move for them and maybe it can awaken their program. I remember when I was in school (the first couple years) they (and Detroit) were pretty damn good and a thorn in our side.

    Yes, it’s hard to believe now but back in 1998 the Horizon League sent 3 teams to the NCAA tournament. Butler beat UW-Green Bay in conference tournament championship game to earn the automatic bid. Both Detroit & Illinois-Chicago received at-large bids despite not making it to the championship game in the conference tourney.
