After their best year last year, NJIT trying to beef up their OOC schedule. Just this week, they've added UConn, Rutgers (who should be much better this year) and Providence.

Smart choice since they finish their OOC last season 12-3 and their most impressive OOC win was against Brown.

Eric Youncofski, the DOBO, posted on Basketball Traveler's scheduling board that they were looking for a buy game on December 4th or 5th

Pretty solid game
While this game is a cupcake in a matchup sense, there is certainly some interesting historical context and I'd like to check out how Lange does with his lean team.

Saint Joseph's has 7 guys on scholarship right now. Their best player last year went pro, their 2nd best player Lamarr Kimble is now with Louisville and their best freshman last year Jared Bynum transferred to Providence.

In terms of talent, junior 6'9 forward Taylor Funk stayed around and is their best returning player while Ryan Daly is a good transfer from Delaware. At 6'4 226, Daly is built like a outside linebacker and has averaged 16.7 ppg, 6.9 rpg and 2.2 apg throughout his career at Delaware. Aside from that, there is a dearth of talent for Saint Joseph's.

In general, I'm rooting for Billy Lange to try to turn around this team. He entered a difficult situation, especially after Martelli's messy exit. He's going to have a rough first year, but in some cases it's better to get a fresh start.

As a college basketball lover who is a non-season ticket holder, this is a game I have interest in that will likely go very cheap on the secondary market.

Oh, right, I forgot Martelli got fired. Hopefully the team can be turned around - it’s got a great fan base and if there was any team with alumni who demand good basketball, it’s the St. Joe’s guys. Many suffer from the Philly sports fan mentality - too homerish, no one else can be good, and zero objectivity - but they’re passionate.
A fun game is Villanova v St. Joe’s at the Palestra.

Given that we're playing Nova 3x a season starting next year, any chance we could move that away game to a neutral site?
