Interesting Approach to Scheduling

What Would Jesus Do?

Hall of Famer

I took a glance at New Mexico on KenPom because I was curious to see how Jeremiah Francis was doing.

They haven't played yet, so no answer on that score, but their scheduling caught my eye.

First, they are only playing conference games.

Second, they play each team twice in a row, with a day or 2 between games. Both games at the same venue.

So, for example, they play AT Boise St on 12/3 and 12/5. Then the come home and play Nevada on 12/31 and 1/2. Then they stay home for games against Utah St. on 1/7 and 1/9. Then to UNLV for a pair, and so on.

Now it would suck to have to play dook twice in a row at dook. Then again, I imagine they would feel the same about having to face us twice in 3 days in the Dean Dome.

But as a way to minimize COVID spread, this kind of schedule may have some merit.
