Standings as of 2017-03-14

UWP/DePaul have played 7 games with each other in this Season, with the record being UWP 5-2 DePaul. The players of these two teams were curious if this made a League record. Turns out, it ties for second. The League record for games played against a single opponent in a single season is 9 games played.

In their overall 14 matches over their history, the record stands UWP 12-2 DePaul. Prehistory records include a couple more, here and there, but to take this into consideration: before 2017, DePaul/UWP have only played once a season, on average.

Existing Record:
2015, 9 games: GVSU 9-0 MSU (inc 2 “doubleheaders”)
2015, 7 games: GVSU 6-1 CMU (inc 0 doubles)
2016, 7 games: GVSU 5-2 MSU (inc 1 doubleheader)
2017, 7 games: GVSU 5-2 MSU (inc 2 doubleheaders)
2017, 7 games: UWP 5-2 DePaul (inc 1 doubleheader)

There’s been a lot of 5 games, and 6 games are a little rarer. While GVSU/MSU is about 83 miles and 1:20 between arenas, UWP/DePaul is 183 miles and 3:30 between the courts. GVSU/CMU tied the 7 game records as well. That drive is 96 miles and about 1:40. Even if you throw a couple neutral court events in there, UWP/DePaul segment might be able to claim that statistic over the Michigan Quadrilateral.  Something for everyone!

CMU still holds the League record for most games played in one season, at 40 games in 2015. It’s now shared with Kent, posting the same total games played in 2016.

2015, 40 games: CMU
