Fontbonne at Moody Bible... Even closer to UChicago. And, there is a hipster hotel next door with at least a few super cheap rooms: https://fieldhousejones.com/chicago/

UChicago has a great gym if you have never been. Plus, you may be able to watch Illinois Wesleyan at Lake Forest, Olivet at Wheaton College, Concordia Wisconsin at Dominican, Fontbonne at North Park, Aurora/Finlandia/Aurora at Carthage and Rose-Hulman at North Central (Monday).

Fontbonne isn't playing at North Park. It's playing North Park in Moody Bible Institute's famed Solheim Gym, the most famous gym in the NBA that isn't actually home to an NBA team.

Greg,
Thanks for posting the link to Solheim Gym. Quite an interesting story that I'd never heard about. Plus K.

The non-conference opponents are the usual for the most part, though Chicago appears to be hosting St. Thomas and Nebraska Wesleyan in a tournament along with DePauw.

I might need to spend Thanksgiving weekend in Chicago!

FYI: The tournament at Chicago (with DePauw, Nebraska Wesleyan and St. Thomas is the weekend before Thanksgiving. Turkey Day in 2019 is at late as it can be on Nov. 28.

Emory has posted their scheduled for next season: https://www.emoryathletics.com/sports/mbkb/2019-20/schedule

Emory plays a host of regional non-conference opponents.

They will end non-conference play at home with UW-Oshkosh and Guilford.  Notably, Emory will play Guildford twice in the Fall 2019.

Those will be challenging games for Emory --  UWO being reigning national champs and Guilford losing by 3 to UWO in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament in March. Guilford will probably be better this season.

Indeed, that is why I mentioned those games.

Prediction: Emory wins both home games.

Those will be good wins for whichever teams win those games. Good to see these teams scheduling each other. I expect Guilford to be the pre-season pick to win the ODAC.

WUPIFFFFF... Question out of curiosity... as I age, I forget about stuff that was probably obvious to me 20 years ago.... was Johns Hopkins ever in the UAA?  Why aren't they in the UAA as compared to the CC?

Johns Hopkins was a founding member of the UAA and hence the nickname the nerdy nine.  They departed in 2001.

I am sure someone else knows the reason and will offer an explanation.

I wish they played more UAA schools in non-conference plays, but alas...

The ghost of Conference Guidebooks past says:

"Former men's basketball members: Johns Hopkins (1986-2001) did not play a full UAA schedule and was ineligible for the conference title"
