Found: College hoops scheduling clearinghouse
I wrote about college basketball scheduling earlier this week, and a reader sent me a link to a fascinating website, Basketball Travelers Inc.:
This is basically a clearinghouse for college basketball scheduling. A marketplace for schools needing to schedule games. Most major schools on here are trying to buy games against outmanned opponents, while mid-majors are on here trying to schedule home-and-home series.
The entries are placed chronologically, so the most recent post appears first. This one from St. Bonaventure was made early Wednesday morning and repeats most of the same information from a St. Bonnie post four weeks ago:
St. Bonaventure needs two H/H’s to complete our 2010-11 schedule. Need to start one at home between Nov. 14-16 and one on the road Nov. 30 or Dec. 1. Willing to do a four-year HAAH for anyone starting here Nov. 14-16 and open to a H/H same season or Triangle. We are losing two of our top three scorers and our starting PG
Some clarification is in order. H/H is home-and-home series. HAAH means home, away, away, home over a four-year period. Triangle is when three teams are involved in the scheduling, apparently A hosts B, B hosts C, C hosts A.
And you’ve got to love the plug on how poor the Bonnies might be, losing two of their top three scorers and a starting point guard. Arkansas State lays it out thick: “Our leading scorer/Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the year just transferred!”
