ESPN made official the 2010 BracketBusters pool this week. We already knew UWM would get to play a home game in the event, but now we know the full list of possible opponents for that day.
Most UWM fans probably know the drill by now ... ESPN will pick 11 televised matchups and then the rest of the games are set up based on geography, records and other scheduling concerns. So, the road teams that UWM could play, broken down by league, are ...
Boston University; New Hampshire
Cal Poly; Long Beach State; UC Davis; UC Santa Barbara
Drexel; James Madison; UNC Wilmington; Old Dominion; Towson; William & Mary
Metro Atlantic Athletic
Fairfield; Marist; Niagara; Rider; Siena
Akron; Buffalo; Eastern Michigan; Northern Illinois; Toledo; Western Michigan
Drake; Indiana State; Wichita State
Morgan State; South Carolina State
Morehead State; Southeast Missouri; Tennessee State; Tennessee Tec; Tennessee-Martin
College of Charleston; Elon; Western Carolina
Louisiana Tech; Nevada; New Mexico State; San Jose State
SIU Edwardsville is also a road team in the event, but since UWM already plays SIUE this January that won't be a matchup. And, it is also possible Indiana State and Milwaukee could play in Baton Rouge in the NIT event, so that would mean the Sycamores would be eliminated from the list for UWM, as well.
As a side note, league schools also playing home games are Butler, Cleveland State, Detroit and Green Bay. Those playing road games are Loyola, UIC, Wright State, Valpo and Youngstown State.
