    They have a sick basketball arena. However it looks like no one shows or maybe its just so big it seems small (see video). Hopefully that will change once they move to D1. Does anyone have stats on their average attendance? They seem like a women's basketball power house only losing to University of Cincinnati by 3 points as a D2 team now that's legit!

    They would be a great additon to the conference. Good tradition, facilities, and a team dedicated to winning. It's cool getting some exposure in Kentucky too.

    WIU would probably partner with UMKC which might be very similar in distance or quite possibly a little farther than traveling to IUPUI. That would put USD and UNO together. Partners NDSU/SDSU,
    NKU/IUPUI, IPFW/Oakland, USD/UNO and WIU/UMKC. Actually not too bad.

    That seems like good partner pairing.....although I still think UNO weakens the conference.

    Perhaps, but I learned something last night watching the Oakland/Tennessee game that I hadn't known. Oakland was a D2 about 10 years ago. Oakland has come a long ways and have become the team to beat in the Summit year in and year out. I think UNO's AD has his work cut out for him because he can't put all of their focus on BB because of teh hockies, but there is no reason that UNO can't become a very competitive school.

    What's ironic about all that is:

    USD is closer to SDSU than it is to UNO, SDSU is closer to USD than it is to NDSU, and UMKC is closer to UNO than it is to WIU,

    you've got SDSU & USD @ 100 miles apart, not travel partners and UNO to UMKC @ 188 miles, not travel partners.

    Instead you get NDSU & SDSU @ 190 miles and UMKC to WIU @ 290 miles.

    My solution? Kick NDSU and WIU out of the league to simplify logistics.
