    Especially on the road. We only play them once each.

    UTA sure has cratered. Speculation there's something afoul in the locker room.

    Can someone explain the conference's rationale for this type of scheduling? A home game is such a huge advantage in MBB.

    You play everyone in your division twice. You play everyone in the opposing division once. In addition you play two teams an additional time on a rotating basis. Otherwise we'd play just sixteen conference games, or twenty two instead of eighteen.

    There are no divisions in basketball. We play two teams only once at home and two teams only once on the road. Those four teams are different each year based on home and road games.

    There is consideration being given to increasing the number of conference games. Reason is a few of the major conferences are going to 20 conference games making it more difficult to complete the non conference schedule. Also All league teams are having trouble getting home games.

    And correct me if I am wrong, but all teams play in the tourney? So a team could have zero wins, but still win the tourney? And since it is so difficult to get a high RPI, even if you are the champ if you don't win the tourney you aren't going to the dance, right?

    That is correct. However that would be extremely difficult as the top four seeds get a bye meaning they only need to win three games while the other 8 need to win four. Theoretically you can get an at large bid from any league but RPI process is geared to major schools.
