Gonzaga Basketball ISO One-Night Stand, Must Like Being Dominated

A date with this guy means another notch...in the loss column.
Sometimes college basketball programs struggle to fill their schedules. There are, after all, only so many conference games to go around.

Eventually teams might need to look elsewhere to find an opponent. Like Basketball Travelers men's schedule board, the "Craigslist of college hoops" according to Deadspin.

Like the real Craigslist, most suitors don't want to come right out and say what they're interested in. So when Gonzaga promises "$ game at soldout arena" and "great experience," what its really saying is that if you fly all the way to Spokane you're gonna get your ass kicked, but at least you'll be well compensated.

Despite the presence of the Zags, the board is mainly used for smaller programs who highlight their, um, attractiveness (i.e. beatability) to the heavies. Like Wright State, which promises to lose nine players in the next two years, including four seniors. (Easy win!)

Thankfully, of the state-wide teams seeking hook-ups (Eastern Washington, Washington State and Seattle U) not one debases itself quite as thoroughly. Although the Redhawks do offer free lodging. Whores.
