Re: Week #6 - Games of Interest

We probably only want to cut three if we follow your plan DPS, because UMass is leaving at some point and I have to imagine sooner rather than later. Personally I wouldn't cut George Mason. Just outside of DC, big arena, and I believe they are planning on renovating it. Seems to me that even though ...

Plus because of the state budget crisis they're trying to sell it to a private investor who might not keep it as is and would jack up uconn's rent if it was kept as a big arena. And if they can't find a private investor to buy it they still can't afford the money needed to refurbish it.
