Hampton is starting men's lacrosse in 2016 and will play as an independent. Would The Socon be interested in adding them as an associate member in a few years. A ninth team would be perfect and they fit geographically. If a current Socon member was close to adding lacrosse, I would say we don't need to add Hampton, If Div. I lacrosse grows like many expect over the next dozen years there will be a probably be a good bit of movement between conferences. To tell you the truth, I wouldn't mind adding NJIT as a ninth member, but I'm not paying travel expenses.
Was wondering, with the ASun possibly adding a school or two over the next few years, if they don't close up shop, it's possible whomever they add will play lacrosse. Would that lacrosse team automatically play in the Southern Conference ? I imagine it would be discussed before the school would make that move.
