Double headers and 4 on 4 mixed?

Couple of real short topics with a lot of questions for the basketball obsessed... First, a concept...

4 on 4 mixed basketball

The basic premise is the game is played like a normal basketball game except that the teams have two men and two women on them at all time. Beyond that I really don't know how it would work out.

I mean, would it be any fun to play? To watch? How would it be different? Would it be safe? What size ball would be used?

Second, less drastic and more viable, the scheduling of double headers...

I've often wondered why the SEC, or NCAA in general, doesn't do double headers for rivals. For instance, I think it would be fun to have the women's team tip off against Tennessee at Rupp at 6 followed by the men at 8. High schools do this quite a bit to conserve travel costs, and while colleges don't need to do this, I think it would be fun. What would be the double header pairings in the SEC?

Would the SEC allow a pair of its schools to do this while none of the others did? I can see UK/UT doing this simply because their women's program has become as legendary in its own right as our men's program. On good years the Tennessee men's team is a threat, and Mitchel looks to be in the process of founding a new women's basketball dynasty in the SEC but only time will tell (and in any event, there's only one Pat Summit).

Anyway, just some random thoughts for the lunch hour..
