A fine schedule. Almost a true round robin except Toledo won't visit us and we won't visit Eastern Michigan. Miami on a January Tuesday is lame. Otherwise, four Saturday home games and a Friday home game with none during a student break. If we end up actually playing this with fans in the building, this is as fan-friendly of a conference schedule as we've ever had.

Playing the cynic, assuming we have fans in the stands, how many of those Saturday games end up on a Friday night with 10 days notice?

Cynicism aside, I'm hoping this comes to fruition and we all get to be in The Convo on 1/2/21.

It's easier to put a b-ball team in a bubble than other teams, so I expect that we'll able to play a few OOC games in December -- maybe at home with restrictions on attendance (if necessary in December) or maybe as part of a bubble somewhere -- and will be able to have some fans at MAC home games, at least in February. There's probably going to be a spike in cases on campus when the students come back in January but may be back down by February.

Anyway, it sure beats cardboard cutouts and recorded crowd noise.

So you're saying there are tickets available at Eastern Michigan?

Why not got to a full round-robin this year?

Would make sense, especially since they're cutting back on the number of teams in the tournament.

What is the percentage of capacity for indoor venues?

Where is EMU going to find 300 fans to attend?

Michigan allows only two guests for each athlete, with no other spectators allowed. That should allow EMU to have a sellout crowd at every home game.

Correct, 300 is currently a State of Ohio thing.
