A trip to Hawaii highlights the Broncos non-conference slate

November 29 Cornell

December 15 @ Missouri

*Hawaii Tournament

After an impressive 22-13 season last year, the Broncos are looking to build on the experience gained by the freshmen and sophomores that received a good deal of playing time. The schedule sets up nicely for them, starting with a trip out to Hawaii to begin the season (can't argue with that). Plus, they'll play some a quality team in New Mexico State, who features 7'5" big man Sim Bhullar and also his brother, 7'3" Tanveer Bhullar, who'll be a freshman this season. I already can't wait to see Shayne Whittington go against those two.

Trips to Northwestern and Missouri will be good experiences for this Bronco team, and will help prepare them for the tough MAC schedule. Yes, there are a few duds like Alabama A&M and Siena Heights, but overall this is a strong schedule. It has an average KenPom rating of 163.6, which isn't too shabby.
