Looks like we'll end 5-5 as Bradley is down big in San Diego, just not shooting very well.

When you're pretty evenly matched, that's how it tends to work out.

Anyone want to calculate the average travel distance/time as well? I'm sure it wasn't pretty for the visitors...

Straight line measurements from campus to campus - arena to arena may vary by a couple miles but really makes no difference

617 miles - Drake @ Wyoming
676 miles - Colorado State @ Missouri State
933 miles - Air Force @ Indiana State
1,076 miles - Evansville @ New Mexico
1,275 miles - Utah State @ Loyola
1,286 miles- UNLV @ UNI
1,444 miles - Loyola @ Boise State
1,608 miles - Bradley @ San Diego State
1,624 miles - Illinois State @ Nevada
1,781 miles - San Jose State @ Southern Illinois

Average distance is 1,232 miles.

Loyola also traveled 900 miles from Charleston to Chicago a day and a half before the trip to Boise.

UNI did a similar stretch in 2015. It was brutal

11/28 @ North Dakota

Then
12/5 @ Richmond
12/8 @ George Mason
12/12 @ New Mexico

3 games
7 days
3 time zones
2,700 miles

A week and a half later UNI played an MTE in Hawaii. Also played a game in Des Moines in-between the UNM and Hawaii.

Between 11/28 and 12/25 UNI traveled 13,000 miles, played 9 games in 4 different time zones. UNI also played 2 of the first 3 conference games on the road as well that year - SIU and MSU - which pushed it to 14,500 miles in a month and a half.

The bottom line is that if you want to play good teams, you have to travel some. I would take UNI's schedule and travel any day over what other teams do in the OOC!!

Unfortunately, that travel and grind led to a fair amount of illness during the month of January and the team was a wreck. It wasn't until mid-February that it seemed like we were finally healthy and competing at a high level, by which time it was too late to really make an impact on the top spots in the standings....thank goodness for the Arch
