NCAA announces start date for 2020-2021 college basketball season

John Watson, Sports Editor

Basketball is set to be the first sport to return to campus as the NCAA recently announced a start date of Nov. 25th for competitive play.

This date is 15 days later than originally scheduled and comes with a list of requirements that each school must follow that is different from past years.

  • Teams will be able to schedule 23 regular season games and one multiple-team event that can include up to four games. If a team does not opt to play a multiple-team event, they will be able to schedule 25 regular season games instead.
  • Practice can begin on Oct. 14th
  • There will be no organized exhibitions or scrimmages against other teams.
  • The Division I council recommends a minimum of four non-conference games.

With sports coming back to campus, it’s clear to see that the UNF women’s basketball team is excited to see their season begin in a recent tweet published to @OspreyWBB.

Nevertheless, let’s hope that all goes well for all of our Osprey hoopers and staff as the season is set to begin on Nov. 25th.
