I have been hearing UMass being mentioned, but that is a public university and they have football. But they are losing money big time on football. Richmond is a name I hear a lot. If Boston U was willing to invest as much into basketball as they do hockey, that would be a great fit. But their current gym is a cracker box.
I think the Big East will be content to sit back for the next couple of years and assess the landscape before making a moves.
