College Basketball Schedule
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall University head men's basketball coach Donnie Jones announced today the Thundering Herd's 2008-09 schedule, which features a 16-game Conference USA slate and 31 regular season contests overall - nearly half of which will come against teams that competed in postseason play a season ago.
SEATTLE -- More than 65 percent of the opponents that appear on the University of Washington's men's 2008-09 basketball schedule participated in postseason championship action last spring. The most successful of those was NCAA champ Kansas, the Huskies' semifinal opponent in the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic.
Butler's young men's basketball team will be tested early and often in 2008-09. The Bulldogs' 29-game schedule, released on Thursday (Sept. 18), includes a pair of games against teams from last year's NCAA Tournament, two games against Big Ten foes and an always-tough slate of Horizon League contests.
