Is there a date? I wonder what their plans are since the trip to London to play Marist is off.
No date was given, unfortunately. Who knows, could come down to a couple of dates depending on how other games shake out.

Continuing with today's Rothstein Schedule Dump, Stony Brook will travel to Yale this year, beginning "a multi-year series."

With the new Iona game, plus the shortening of non-conference play with the NJIT addition...

1-3. Gulf Coast Showcase
4. at Alabama
5. at Clemson
6. Iona @ Mohegan Sun
7. vs. Yale (presumed)
8. at UNC-Greensboro (presumed)
9. vs. Dartmouth (presumed)
10-13. Unannounced

Cool deal about Mohegan Sun. Went to the tourney there last year, had a blast. Don't think the date is going to work for me this time around, sadly.

I do have some questions: are we the only game that day, or is this part of a "showcase" of some kind with other games in a single-day, non-tournament setting? If we are the only game, how well does Iona travel? Because as an example, there was a solid Vermont turn-out for the Saturday night tourney game...but hardly any CCSU fans, and the place felt empty. Even if CCSU had an equal turnout to what UVM showed up with, it wouldn't have filled the lower bowl. So it would be cool if it was a day-long thing with other fan bases showing up (there were some straggler UVA and St. John's fans filling seats for that Saturday night game).

CCSU has been horrible the last 8 years, do no surprise we had such a poor turnout. We used to draw well when hosting UMass and winning :(


This could be paired up with a URI game, as a double header which might help attendance.

URI is already slated to play at Mohegan Sun in the HOF Tip-Off Tournament this year, its 3rd time in this event. It will face Marquette in a Saturday afternoon game and then either Minnesota or UCF on Sunday. I have heard nothing about URI playing another game there this season and would doubt so giving it already has two games at the venue.

Mohegan has hosted non tournament style HOF Showcase single day events in the last few years. These have typically been double or triple headers that have had one or two local teams to help drive attendance. URI played West Virginia in one of these back in 2018 drawing 5,812 (other games Dayton-Tulsa and Drexel-Quinnipiac). Providence College played Houston in 2017 in front of 5,518 (other game St John's-St Joe's).

they really should just join the AE.... they play at least 3-4 teams in the AE every year, they play Hartford every year. Hartford finds a way to lose every year against them too...
