Basketball scheduling - MVC vs. MWC

ESPN.com has the dates and matchups for the Missouri Valley Conference-Mountain West Conference challenge. TCU visits WSU on Dec. 12, the completion of a series that started last season in Fort Worth. The Valley appears to get a bad roll with the matchups. The best matchups (SIU at UNLV, Creighton at New Mexico, Illinois State at Utah) put the Valley on the road. It’s also unfortunate Wyoming (6th in the MWC) plays at MVC defending champion Northern Iowa.

This series will be much more interesting when it can be played over a single weekend, which I understand is the plan for the future.

With this addition, here is what we know about WSU’s schedule

Nov. 23-24 at CBE Classic in Kansas City

Nov. 28 at Cleveland State

Dec. 12 vs. TCU

Dec. 19 vs. Texas Tech

According to the MVC’s Twitter feed, the conference is hard at work on the schedule, due later this month.
