College basketball 2020-21 season announcement date offered on mid-September by NCAA’s Dan Gavitt

NCAA Senior vice chairman of Basketball Dan Gavitt released the subsequent statement Monday:

“As we steel oneself against the 2020-21 college season we’ve exercised patience and discipline in monitoring the consequences of COVID-19 and making decisions regarding the season. we’ve learned an excellent deal over the course of the summer, and with health and safety being our priority, we’ve developed and studied contingency plans for alternatives to the scheduled Nov. 10 start date.

In the coming weeks, the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Basketball Oversight Committees will take the lead with me during a collaborative process of finalizing any recommendations for consideration by the NCAA Division I Council for the beginning of the school season . By mid-September, we’ll provide direction about whether the season and practice start on time or a short-term delay is necessitated by the continued pandemic.

We recognize that we live and operating in an uncertain time, and it’s likely that mid-September are going to be just the primary milestone for several important decisions concerning the regular season and therefore the NCAA basketball championships. While circumstances may warrant flexibility leading to a special and maybe imperfect season, the last word goal is to securely provide student-athletes and teams with an excellent college basketball experience.”
