Examples of college bball teams playing b2b nights for non-tourney games?
Not in tournament play, obviously. Stumbled across a video on youtube of 1991 NC State vs UNC. They played back to back games on a Wednesday night and Thursday night. First one was in Raleigh and second was in Chapel Hill.

Wondering if this was more commonplace back in the day, maybe for teams to do quick home/aways in conference if there was a close proximity. But I feel like that would have been a rarity. And back to back home games seems like a pretty bad idea because youd have to probably get two different teams, and that seems like a pretty big self handicap to play another team thats rested.

Im unware of anything happening like that recently. Seems like a pretty neat concept though.


eta:

I am now qualifying this question and requesting if there are any examples of major conference teams playing each other or other major conference teams in back to back games. Specifically the home/away type format between two opponents.

Seems like it would be impossible during school

Baylor sort of did it this season.

12/17 - Jackson State - played at Fort Hood
12/18 John Brown University (NIAI) - played in Waco

It was a part of a 4 games in 7 day stretch.

Actually it's happened just this week. Oakland University, a division 1 team in Michigan played Northeastern this past Wednesday the 21st and lost on a last second shot 61-59 at home, then traveled to East Lansing to play Michigan State the very next day, Thursday the 22nd. They actually play Georgia tomorrow the 24th so that's 3 games in 4 nights for them.

Thanks guys lots of good answers. Its one of those things where its kinda hard to look up unless your familiar with the teams that did it, at least for me.

However, great point on the Ivy League, totally forgot about them playing their conference games on Sat/Suns.

I almost qualified this question with "major conference teams" only, but I wasnt sure how common it was. But between ivy league and some of this lesser level teams, it seems pretty frequent. Oakland is a pretty decent team though to play a back to back, so it surprises me to schedule that since it puts your team at such a disadvantage.

Also another good post in here about Baylor doing it, however playing an NAIA team is basically a scrimmage. LSU playing 3 in 3 days seems like some sort of round robin tourney, thats really strange. (after looking this up, it was a round robin tourney hosted at the PMAC, not really what I was interested in, thanks though)

Any example of something similar to what I mentioned in the OP then? Any in state rivals do this that are in the same conference? An Ole Miss/MSU perhaps? That is really what I am most interested in. Two teams playing each other back 2 back, particularly in a major conference.
