    One coach called it a “monster” roadblock. Another described it as “extreme.” A source from the Big East suggested it could lead to alterations in its planning for the season. The NCAA, through the Sport Science Institute and its COVID-19 Medical Advisory Group, released health and safety guidelines and recommendations for college basketball’s Nov. 25 return amid the coronavirus pandemic, and one suggestion stood out: If a player tests positive, the entire team should quarantine for 14 days and only work out individually in that time period, while noting that public health officials can override these determinations. That, depending on when a player tests positive, could wipe out up to four games and two weeks of practices. “My first...

    By RALPH D. RUSSO, AP College Football Writer The Pac-12 on Thursday set a Nov. 6 start date for a six-game football regular season, following the Big Ten in overturning its August decision to postpone until spring because of concerns about playing through the pandemic. The conference's CEO group of university presidents voted unanimously to resume football and basketball, lifting a Jan. 1 moratorium on athletic competition for Pac-12 schools. The men's and women's basketball seasons can start Nov. 25, in line with the NCAA's recently announced opening date. The football championship game will be held on Dec. 18. The Pac-12 said its decision to restart sports is subject to approval from state and local public health officials. No fans...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — With the coronavirus pandemic already forcing changes for college basketball, a bubble may be brewing in Indianapolis. Indiana Sports Corp. released a 16-page proposal Friday that calls for turning the city convention center’s exhibition halls and meeting rooms into basketball courts and locker rooms. There would be expansive safety measures and daily COVID-19 testing. The all-inclusive price starts at $90,000 per team and would cover 20 hotel rooms per traveling party, testing, daily food vouchers ranging from $30-$50 and the cost of game officials. Sports Corp. President Ryan Vaughn said the price depends on what offerings teams or leagues choose. “The interest has been high,” Vaughn said. “I think as conferences figure out what conference and non-conference...
    Last year, when LeBron James described some of President Trump’s public statements as “laughable and scary,” Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham ordered the basketball superstar to “shut up and dribble.” LeBron responded thoughtfully by saying that her comment “resonated with me, but I think it resonated with a lot of people to be able to feel like they can be more.” Those “people” have come to include most of the National Basketball Association and hundreds of other athletes in professional baseball, hockey, football, women’s basketball, and the top tiers of college sports. As for that “more” they have become? They are now active participants in the most significant and inclusive wave of the often crushed or coopted yet ever breathing “athletic revolution”...

    There never has been much doubt a 2020-21 Division I college basketball season would occur in some form, with an NCAA Tournament and a majority of programs finding a way to participate. The NCAA’s announcement Wednesday of a Nov. 25 start date for men’s and women’s basketball — with guidelines and requirements for staging a season — made that official. The NCAA was not in position, however, to offer a substantial degree of clarity regarding many of the variables. Will there be bubbles? Will there be non-conference games and early season tournaments? What impact will the loss of non-conference revenue have on programs in less wealthy conferences? What will the NCAA Tournament look like? Will it expand or contract? Will any conferences choose...
    College basketball will begin on Nov. 25, about three weeks later than this past season and two weeks after it originally was scheduled to start, the NCAA announced Wednesday. No exhibition games or closed scrimmages will be allowed before the start of the season, the NCAA’s Division I Council decreed, and the maximum number of games permitted will be reduced by four to 24, not counting conference tournament or NCAA tournament contests. “The new season start date near the Thanksgiving holiday provides the optimal opportunity to successfully launch the basketball season,” NCAA Senior Vice President of Basketball Dan Gavitt said on the organization’s website. “It is a grand compromise of sorts and a unified approach that focuses on the health...
    College basketball is coming back but what will its return look like? Football fans are no doubt thrilled that the Big Ten opted to return to play next month, but college basketball fans have waited a long time for the resumption of their sport. That formality should be addressed later today when the NCAA is expected to vote on the start date for the college basketball season. Since indoor arenas have the issue of recirculated air it would be a major virus risk to bring hundreds or thousands of fans into a building to watch a game. Expect attendance to be limited to the teams, support staff, broadcast personnel, and potentially family members of the players and/or coaches.What will the...
    By the end of the week, we should have some idea when the 2020-21 college basketball season will start. We already own a high degree of certainty that it will be anything but a typical winter for the players and coaches involved. There figures to be fewer games played. There might not be much of a non-conference season, possibly as few as four games per team. There is no assurance that the NCAA Tournament will be played in its entirety. And, of course, the experience of playing in sold-out gymnasiums and arenas will become a thing of the past (and, one hopes, the near future). This ought not to be what anyone who plays Division I basketball should remember...

    Congratulations to every college basketball on making the 2020-2021 NCAA Tournament. ACC coaches unanimously voted on a proposal that would allow every Division I college basketball team to make the NCAA Tournament, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman. The idea was brought forward by Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, according to Goodman, and based on the unanimous vote, the rest of the league’s coaches were well in favor of trying something different in what could be a unique season. The biggest concern would be where all these extra games would take place, and if the pandemic is still raging, which it very well may be, how much will it cost for the testing and how many “bubbles” will be created across...

    Check out any professional and most college basketball teams. Their starting five, and most of their other 10 players, are black, as is 80% of the NBA. This does not come anywhere close to the diversity and inclusion sought by the nation’s social justice warriors. Both professional and college coaches have ignored and threw any pretense of seeking diversity and inclusiveness. My question to you is: Would a basketball team be improved if coaches were required to include ethnically diverse players for the sake of equity? I have no idea of what your answer might be but mine would be: “The hell with diversity, equity and inclusion. I am going to recruit the best players and do not care if...

    Men's college basketball and football players at top NCAA schools would make an average of $500,000 and $360,000 a year, respectively, if student athletes earned the same revenue shares as their professional counterparts in the NBA and NFL.

Similarly, starting basketball players would have $800,000 average annual salaries under the NBA's CBA. NCAA athletes are currently prohibited from profiting off their respective sports.

    WASHINGTON - Many colleges and universities in the U.S. are in danger of losing millions in revenue from canceled sports events. College sports make roughly $1 billion annually in ticket sales and promotions for universities, according to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Athletic dollars from basketball, football and baseball can contribute more than half to a school's operating budget. “There's never a good time for a pandemic but for college sports, I think this was particularly bad, because it happened right at the beginning of the men's basketball tournament, and the men's basketball tournament is the largest source of revenue for the NCAA,” Kristi Dosh, a college sportswriter and analyst, told VOA. “Not having the men's basketball tournament...
    Given a choice between entering the weakest NBA Draft in a generation and returning to the most challenging Big Ten Conference season since, well, at least last year, the vast majority of players in that position chose another year of B1G basketball.  That’s how it went all across the college game as the NCAA deadline to withdraw from the 2020 NBA Draft approached Monday at midnight. This past weekend was the best in college basketball since that memorable pre-pandemic Saturday when Kentucky, Southern California, Butler and Utah State all won on late baskets and presaged a manic March that, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, was canceled less than a week later.

The group’s committee, chaired by South Carolina coach Frank Martin and Harvard coach Tommy Amaker, said in a statement that the tests “no longer have a place in intercollegiate athletics or education at large.” The elimination of the tests, they said, would be “an important step towards combating educational inequality.” “I am proud of the continued efforts...
