Horizon League scheduling needs to change

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Like most conferences, the Horizon League has its fair share of questions when it comes to scheduling.

For instance, Youngstown State plays Valparaiso on Thursday and Wright State on Saturday. The Raiders play on Tuesday and then not again until Saturday against the Penguins.

YSU Coach Jerry Slocum says this issue needs to change. "To me, there is a competitive disadvantage to play Thursday and then turn around and have to play Saturday while one team plays Tuesday and has three or four days to prepare. At some point you'd like to think that we could kind of get this thing right, in terms of conference stuff," Slocum said.

"I don't really think about it. I mean, we started the season with three games in three days and we won all three. Obviously we're capable of handling turnarounds like that. Guess it's one of those things. It's the way it is. You just got to deal with it," said YSU player Ryan Weber.
