Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

Only 46 days before the Dukes tip off their regular season vs. William and Mary.

Has anyone heard about any exhibition games vs D2/D3 or secret scrimmages vs D-1 that have been scheduled?  I haven't heard a peep so far.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

Just saw this...  The NCAA must be allowing these charity scrimmages again this year.

The West Virginia University men's basketball team will host a charity exhibition game against Penn State inside the WVU Coliseum on Saturday, Nov. 3. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross' hurricane relief efforts.

Nice info, HookShot. Looks like Coach wants this team to come out ready for the opener by going on the road for 2 closed D-1 scrimmages.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

If accurate, its good to get out on the road, even for meaningless, short trips.  Get the freshman a chance to do a road trip before the ND game.

Goodman has been very reliable over the past few years reporting on these “secret” scrimmages.

Cool to see us scrimmaging teams that used to be on the regular schedule!

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

Tomorrow against Canisius. Who will be the first with some scoop on the scrimmage?

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

Saw a Canisius post and one of their posts “heard they did good” in scrimmage against us whatever that means

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

Hopefully that means that Canisius didn't do as bad as the score would indicate.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

I cant find anything on this.  nothing even comes up in searches.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

Just noticed that post I saw says 2017.  Sorry for the bad info - did we scrimmage them last year also?

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

St. Francis scrimmage 2morro. I bet Sarah Spencer has some info on the Canisius srimmage.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

I can disclose that Duquesne won, but that it was close.

Thanks, Zach. Are you referring to the canisius scrimmage or SFU?

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

SFU is the favorite in the NEC this year, so they're not terrible.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

Zach's twitter feed said that this was the result from the Canisius scrimmage.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

For what it's worth, KenPom 2019 has
DU at 171 and Canisius at 169--not surprising the scrimmage was close
Our favorite couple, Bill and Mary are at 128.

Especially on the road...

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

To be fair, Canisius was a good team last year.  They finished tied for first in their conference (15-3) and won 21 games.

Re: Any Word on Exhibition Games or Secret Scrimages?

I like that we are scrimaging against teams that will test us, but not overwhelm us.

If Sarah has some info she didn't share it .

Meanwhile across town - Craig Meyer, on the Pitt B-Ball  beat, has 3 nice sized articles in the print edition ( Preview of their game vs. those tough Youngstown State Penguins on 11.6.18 / info from "Secret Scrimmage" vs. Dayton , Preview of their game vs. those "mean UPJ what evers" , Game recap vs. "UPJ whatevers" ) on consecutive days. All this for a team coming off an 8 win season , a "shutout" in ACC play , and diminishing attendance at home games.

This will be my one and only comment on this situation as it has been going on ( with various "Reasons being given for the coverage - Pitt / lack of coverage - DU ) for many years.  It appears that 2018-19 will be no different.

Peace out.

St. Francis is picked as the favorite to win their conference this year. Did some snooping but couldn't find anything on the scrimmage.

Per twitter, Duquesne won. Don’t know score.
