Nonconference Schedule Update

The one downside to the offseason is the lack of content for us to provide you.  In fact, had it not been for Scott Machado's postseason run with the Golden State Warriors, we would be closing in on nearly a week without any kind of coverage, which for us is unheard of, especially after our 120-game schedule this past season. Therefore, we will break the ice temporarily by getting you up to speed on the nonconference schedules of the teams that we cover, as most have made some kind of announcement of who they will play at some point during the 2013-14 season.

Some of these games obviously have yet to be accompanied by an actual date on the schedule, but the opponents are there based on what we have heard from coaches, colleagues, and the inspiration for this list, this gathering from our friends at Big Apple Buckets:
