This coming Friday (March 11), Weber State will play St Mary’s in a non-league basketball game. This is not part of any tournament since it’s after their respective league tournaments are done and before the NCAA tourney starts. Just an ordinary non-league game.
Is this at all common? I can’t remember such a game scheduled like this before, although I’ll admit to not following college basketball that closely. I generally only follow my team and the league it’s in (Pac-10), so perhaps it happens elsewhere from time to time.
The reason I’m asking is that I’m trying to figure out how many Div I teams end their season with a win. Near as I can tell, it’s usually about 8 and could be as few as 6 or as many as 11. But if this kind of thing is common, it could be more.
