Over the past 23 days, (Mar 18-Apr 9) the Roadrunners have played 16 games. Four of the games were non-conference and included a big win against Baylor, and an equally big loss against Prairie View A&M.
To the point: why would college level kids have to play non-conference games on Tuesday and Wednesday following a weekend series on the road, with three more conference games coming up 2 days later? All this in the middle of one of the more critical academic months of the year.
Counting the previous weekend series against LA Tech, that's 8 games in 10 days. Are the kids really motivated to play against inferior opponents, midweek? Probably not.
On the positive side: we won both conference series during the last 10 day span, 2 games to 1 over both LA Tech and Western Kentucky.
