Brevard is in western NC, so not so far from Maryville, Piedmont and the like.  It's a haul to NC Wesleyan in eastern NC and would have been a very long trip to CNU.  NC covers a lot of territory east to west ... with Tennessee, you can go Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River in only two states ... same with Virginia and Kentucky or Virginia and Tennessee (and, for you purists, Georgia and Tennessee lol).

I do not think Brevard would be a successful candidate for the ODAC or SAA ... USASAC is, in my opinion, their best option.  My nephew attended there as a DII basketball player, so I know their history in the DII South Atlantic Conference.


Me either to the bolded part. I'm just thinking more overall density. The USASC is a huge geographic footprint, although not as bad as the ASC. The south just needs more density to lower the costs in a few of these conferences. The SAA is probably less worried about costs than fit, but I'd think the USASC would love to consolidate a bit. Huntingdon to CNU was a bear, so dropping the northern team helps. But Huntingdon to Averett is still almost 550 miles as is Huntingdon to Methodist. That's a long trip...

Rough travel time from Brevard to the rest of the USA South:

Maryville 2:40
Huntingdon 5:30
LaGrange 4:25
Methodist 4:40
Averett 4
NC Wesleyan 3:15
Ferrum 4:20
Greensboro 3:15

Huntingdon to CNU is like 11 hours and HC to Ferrum is like 9. Ya win some, ya lose some.
Thanks for putting this together ... I have to think Brevard to NCWC might be an error ... probably more like 5:15.
It may be. I did this in haste at la oficina today. It's been a long short week.

Isn't that the species that bit you in the forehead a year or so ago? 

I don't know what bit me then. It was in the night. But I doubt it was a redback because I read that the symptoms are pretty gruesome. There's another spider crawling around, particularly in the woodpile, that looks just like a redback but no stripe. I bet it was one of those nasty buggers. Just because they look mean.

Then don't make them hang out the laundry in Australia if you know what's good for 'em.

Ha!  Who really likes the very young and very old anyway?  The spider's almost doing us a favour.

Hey, now ... my mom is 97 and my grandson is 13 months.  I like them both very much! ;D

I'm enjoying the off-season discussion.  Thanks all for the interest in keeping it going with good questions and good answers.
Does anyone have current info on the open gym summer basketball reported to be at Benedictine and Elmhurst?  I emailed Benedictine but didn't get a reply.  Thanks for an update if or when you have it.

Open summer league will begin Mon, 6/1.

Teams participating will be--Augustana, Aurora, Benedictine, Elmhurst, IL Institute of Technology, IL Wesleyan, Judson U, North Central, Roosevelt U, and Wheaton.
Not all teams may be present on every date. At least not full teams, meaning 5 players.

* All games will be house rules by the team running the site.
* Schools can divide into separate teams of 5 on site. I believe this means, depending on what players show up on any given night, that teams may be comprised of players from different schools.
* There will be no officials, scoreboards, or time clocks. CALL YOUR OWN FOULS.
* Games will run from 5:30 to 8:00 UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.

SCHEDULE:

6/1-Benedictine
6/3-Open date
6/8-Benedictine
6/10-Open
6/11-Elmhurst (4:30-7:00)
6/15-Benedictine
6/17-Open
6/18-Elmhurst (4:30-7:00)
6/22-Open
6/24-Elmhurst
6/29-Illinois Tech (7:00-9:00)--3040 S. Wabash, Chicago. (PARKING UNDER TRACKS)
7/1-Open
7/2-Elmhurst (4:30-7:00)
7/6-IL Tech (7:00-9:00)
7/7-Open
7/9-Elmhurst (4:30-7:00)
7/13-IL Tech (7:00-9:00)
7/15-Open
7/20, 7/22, 7/27, 7/29, 8/3, 8/6, & 8/10--All @ Elmhurst

I'm not sure why the open dates are listed other than to suggest the possibility that games may be added on the listed dates.
