This is just a quick reference post. We’re in the process of prepping our college basketball section for the 2011-12 season, and part of that process is making sure that all the teams are in their correct new leagues. Surprisingly, it’s a bit difficult to find a short, handy list of all the changes for the upcoming year. The best one we’ve found so far is from Blogging the Bracket.
That page is great, as it shows you the old and new member list for each conference that is undergoing changes. But we wanted to condense it a bit further, and list only the teams that have switched conferences (or dropped out of Division I basketball entirely).
And we figured, as long as we pulled the list together, we might as well share it online, in case anybody else is looking for the info.
So, here you go. A list of conference changes for 2011-12 college basketball:
Team From (2010-11) To (2011-12)
Boise State WAC Mountain West
BYU Mountain West WCC
Campbell Atlantic Sun Big South
Centenary Summit Division III
Colorado Big 12 Pac-12
Nebraska Big 12 Big Ten
Savannah State Independent MEAC
SIU Edwardsville Independent Ohio Valley
South Dakota Great West Summit
Utah Mountain West Pac-12
