So much for breaking news over here at Sports Info Headquarters. The Charleston Classic released its brackets today, and the Rams will open the tournament with Seton Hall on Nov. 17. We’ve known that for a little bit, but have been waiting to release the non-conference schedule for a number of reasons. EDIT: As I was posting this, we released the schedule. I’ll have a breakdown of Seton Hall, as well as all the Rams non-conference opponents up shortly.

ESPN’s Andy Katz, a fine gentleman of leisure, had quite a bit to say about the tournament, which you can read here. I can’t really disagree with Katz’s assessment of the field and the Rams. I think he was pretty fair all around. Actually, you could say he was quite generous, picking the Rams to reach the final against Northwestern. I hope it happens.

Meanwhile, as you’re contemplating a possible Ram-Wildcat throwdown, you can take a few minutes to pick Northwestern’s next basketball court design. If you don’t like purple, shield your eyes.
