I think for what will be a very young team, having a bunch of home games early is huge. Coach Piper does a good job of finding challenging and yet winnable games for the non-conference slate.
At Hartford might be a real test as the Hawks will be looking for revenge, and UMass is a step up in class from the NEC.
Holy Cross at home is interesting, and Rhody and Siena give Central a trio of fairly big name area schools coming to New Britain.
Note that the Boston College game is at Chestnut Hill.
The NEC games are oddly bunched, looking more like a baseball schedule. Four-game trip, a few at home, etc.
One mistake I caught... there isn't five in a row at home. It's 3 out of 5. I saw an early version that had me a bit confused.
There's a home and home with Quinnipiac in February but the Sacred Heart games are broken up this year.
The PA trip coming so late in the year has to be a concern. If the Blue Devils are playing for something, that's a tough time to have to head on the road. But Central finishes with two at home, which gives it one more chance.
