So we are going to get 4 exhibition games prior to the start of the regular season.  Three in 3 days at Louisville and 1 six days later at the Mass Mutual Center. All 4  are exempt.

I didn't read in the article that these are exhibition games, actually. I don't really know the rules, either - other than that you have to get NCAA permission to hold a tournament of any sort other than a conference tournament and the 64. Other pre-season tip-off tourneys like the Great Alaskan Shootout usually count, don't they?  What do they mean by "exempt?"

The rules have changed some but .. I think .. the exempt part means as many as four games in such a tournament count as only one regular-season game against the 29-game limit.
The games count. These are real games.

All  of these are regular season games.    Exempt tournaments go back to a rule change over a decade ago, where multi-team events played within a week effectively count as only two games on the schedule.   Thus if you have a 4-game MTE, your team can play 31 games instead of the normal 29.

Thanks, fellas, for clearing that up.

One more thing - since it's round robin and not elimination, does that make a difference under the NCAA rules? Can you have a pre-season (or in-season) elimination tourney? I don't know even where to look for that one. Embarassed

Yes, there are some elimination tournaments - usually just 8 teams. The four winners advance to the right side of the bracket and each play two more games, with a championship game between the two teams that won their first two games plus a consolation game. The four losers move to the left side of the bracket and also play two more games. No team would be interested in a tournament where the loser was immediately eliminated from further play since it would defeat the purpose of being in a MTE.

That makes sense.
