Kudos to Mike McConathy

Northwestern St. head coach Mike McConathy is putting the finishing touches on his team's '06-'07 schedule and it's going to be a doozy. The Demons have Louisville, Oklahoma State, Northwestern (Big Ten), DePaul, Utah State, Hawaii, the Marquette Tournament and another Bracket Buster game next year.

McConathy deserves some credit for sticking to his guns. This year's Demons team will look a lot different than last year's club which upset Iowa. It won't have the level of experience as last year's Demons. He will have some young players on the floor, but he still schedules some quality match-ups, hoping and believing that it plays dividends down the road like the '05-'06 team.

He firmly believes if his team didn't have the tough non-conference opponents, it wouldn't have beaten Iowa. Let's see if playing at Louisville helps the Demons during the Southland Conference.
