Scheduling in basketball is an art form. Every team and every schedule is different and serves its own purpose.

Coaches can schedule games to toughen teams up and prepare to win a championship, to bring a young team along and to learn while winning, or to gain valuable TV exposure. Some coaches and programs even schedule games in order to -- audible gasp -- make money.
