Hoops: Reinhardt an exhibition

Jacksonville State has designated its Dec. 13 basketball game with Reinhardt as an exhibition.

It gives the Gamecocks two non-counting games among their four non-Division I opponents, and brings them in compliance with the OVC's new basketball enrichment policy that allows only two games against non-Division I teams in the regular season.

The Gamecocks' home opener is against Division II West Alabama and they have a game with NAIA Berry College Dec. 30. They play a preseason exhibition against Division II West Georgia Nov. 5.

Berry and Reinhardt are both counting their JSU games as exhibitions that won't count on their records.

There are no immediate plans to find a replacement counting game for Reinhardt – "We’re not going to Washington State," JSU coach James Green joked -- but Green said he would take a game if it fit into a good date on the schedule or helped the program financially or otherwise.
