Niner Nuggets- Week 2

Photo: @Knightsbaseball

We are now two weeks in to the 2023 season, and halfway through the Non-Conference weekend schedule. The Niners sit at 4-4, with three losses by only 1-run. This week Charlotte will host UNC Asheville and then travel to #11 Virginia Tech for their first road series of the season.

It is probably still too early to pay attention to RPI at this point but we have added that column this week. We use Warren Nolan as our source for RPI data. A few things stand out at this point to us. DBU, FAU, and WKU are off to good starts for the conference. Rice is off to its traditional slow start. Overall Conference USA is 48-27.

Here is how Conference USA stands after 2 weekends, listed in order that CLT plays them:
