ESPN Bracketbusters announced tonight

Tonight ESPNU will be broadcasting the pairings for this year's annual bracketbuster event at 6:30pm. Judging by the RPI numbers and other stats it looks like Mason will most likely be playing either Evansville, Creighton, Niagra, or Fairfield. Evansville and Creighton are from the Missouri Valley conference and I would much rather get one of them because of the possibility of having a quality out-of-conference opponent come to the Patriots Center next season.

UPDATE: Creighton it is. Glad we got a MVC team. I'm hoping for an ESPN2 spot but I think we might have to settle for ESPNU. Creighton was the only team to beat Mason at home during the 2005-2006 season and I definitely don't mind having them on the schedule for the 2009-10 season.

Why are we on the road again this year? How is home and road determined?

They've drawn a great match-up. Unfortunately, a W or L doesn't matter except in regards to momentum going into the conference tournament. Too many 2nd half collapses on the road this year.

I'm confused, why does this guarantee Creighton on our schedule next year?
