Fans will get to personally watch Rodney Billups new up-tempo Denver squad with four of the Pioneers first five conference games at Magness Arena. DU’s first road tilt is against defending regular season league champion, IPFW. Games 6 & 7 are on the road against regional rival UNO and IUPUI. Then, the Pios return to Denver to tangle with South Dakota State, the defending Summit League Tournament Champions in a replay of last year’s conference semifinal thriller. The Pios hit a challenging patch with four out of their next five games on the road – with a tough veteran IPFW squad offering the sole opposition in Magness during this stretch. Denver finishes with two out of three games at home and a finale against South Dakota State at Magness
