    Delta Devils

    NCAA College Basketball Recap - Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils at Wisconsin Badgers - Dec 23, 2011 - CBSSports.com

    This was the Delta Devil's 11th of 12 straight games away from home to start the season. They play at Iowa State on Dec. 31 before finally playing at home on Jan. 3.
    Woods said the extended road trip against the likes of North Carolina, Arkansas, Northwestern and Florida is starting to take its toll. He told his players they have off until Tuesday and won't practice again until Wednesday.

    That's brutal. Not a very good team, but a terrible set of circumstances.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Great experience for those kids. They get to play at the top spots in the country. Sucks now but looking back they will ne glad they did it

    Unfortunately this is how some schools fund their basketball program

    Unfortunately this is how some schools fund their athletic department.

    FIFY.

    In the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook preview of MVSU they write that all the guaranteed games will bring in 780,000 dollars to the athletic department. Sounds like they could really use it too, the preview also mentions that the gym floor sustained a crack in it last season, and as a result the team had to practice for a few days at a middle school.

    It happens a lot with the SWAC (and similar level) schools. Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Savannah State come to mind. When one of those type of teams came in a few years ago, their coach said it was like their 14th straight road game out of 16 -- or some such ridiculous tally.
