Get your tickets ready now: the Fairfield/Sacred Heart men's basketball game has officially been announced for Tuesday, November 18th at the Arena at Harbor Yard.
The game was originally scheduled for November 23rd, but the Stags requested a date change due to the team's impending tournament in Puerto Rico. Cooley has said that the team will literally take the first flight out to PR the morning on the 19th.
Surprisingly (at least to Chris Elsberry), the Fairfield/SHU women's game was not changed and will be a sole act on the 23rd at Harbor Yard. Should be interesting to see the crowd turnout for that game.
This adjustment means that the men's out-of-conference schedule is set:
Friday, Nov. 14 - @ Memphis
Tuesday, Nov. 18 - vs. Sacred Heart
Thursday, Nov 20 – Puerto Rico Tip-off Tournament (Va. Tech)
Friday, Nov 21 – Puerto Rico Tip-off Tournament (likely Xavier)
Sunday, Nov 23 – Puerto Rico Tip-off Tournament (likely Tenn-Chattanooga)
Wednesday, Nov. 26 – Western Michigan
Monday, Dec. 1 - @ Holy Cross
Wednesday, Dec. 10 - @ Fordham
Monday, Dec. 15 - Drexel
Saturday, Dec. 27 - @ UConn
Feb 2009 - Bracket Buster
TBD: St. Francis (NY), American
