If you’re a casual college basketball fan, you might not have heard of the NCAA’s “secret” scrimmages — essentially, it’s another exhibition game, only one held without any media or fans present, and often can be longer than a typical exhibition game, (by adding a third half, for instance) and offering more flexibility for coaches to…well, coach.
As the term “secret” would imply, their existence isn’t supposed to be made public. So, enter Jeff Goodman of ESPN, who posted this comprehensive list of this year’s not-so-secret “secret” scrimmages.
I’ve pulled out all the OVC scrimmages, and posted the list below:
Miami (OH) at Murray State
Eastern Kentucky at Marshall
Lincoln-Memorial at Morehead State
UMKC at SIUE
Tennessee Tech at WKU
UT Martin at Arkansas Little Rock
Tennessee State at Samford
Wofford at Belmont
Eastern Illinois at Missouri-St. Louis
Belmont at Mercer
Tennessee State at Chattanooga
