Makes sense - the two with the more respectable arenas play on campus a lot while the rest avoid it almost entirely.

Most of these teams play some exhibition games on campus.

Seton Hall played its first regular season game of the year at Walsh on its campus against UMKC. The Pirates played their two NIT games there last year. Georgetown has played a few regular season and NIT games at McDonough over the last few years.

Re: update on facilities for Fordham

Something about Xavier (proceeding from Dash's timeline above) was the availability of the Cincinnati Gardens in our growth as a place to rent. Leaving the on campus small Schmidt facility, and going to the Gardens(10K) gave us a chance to have a temporary home while we invested in other parts of the program. As the success came, we were able to transition finally into the Cintas. The Gardens were close to campus, but not the same (especially for dorm students) as having your own, good size place.(10K)

The BE schools rent really large, arena type venues, that must be pretty costly. I wonder if there are any mid-size places (10K) to utilize until maybe they build their own on campus place. Then again, if they can put out a quality product and fill the big box, guess they wouldn't even think about it.

I did not count exhibitions and I missed Seton Hall's game vs. UMKC. Sue me! It does not change the overall picture very much though. I also did not check past seasons as I have to at least make believe I am doing some work today.

One or two of them were tough to figure out for certain b/c their online schedule did not detail location other than city.

Re: update on facilities for Fordham

Most of the league games that Villanova and St. John's have played off campus are against Big East teams that will no longer be conference partners. Don't look for them to play additional conference games off campus in the coming years. If anything, it will be less. They are losing their biggest league draws - Syracuse, Pitt, ND, UConn, and Louisville. Georgetown and St. John's will however likely still have games against Syracuse off campus for OOC games as Boeheim is on record as saying he wants those opponents to remain on the schedule. He made these comments when he played his last Big East game in Providence basically saying he probably won't be coming back to town in the future to play PC.
