College Basketball Decision Day is tomorrow
The NCAA will (hopefully) finalize the parameters for the 2020-21 college basketball season tomorrow. Here is the current thinking of how it will go. Some or all of this will surely change as it is debated.

• Season start date - November 21 (or 11/23 or 11/25)

• Minimum number of games played to be considered for the NCAA Tournament - 13 (currently 25) . For schools choosing to play the minimum, all 13 games must be against Division I competition.

• Maximum number of games allowed - 26 (currently 31); 28 if playing in a Multi-Team Event (tournament). Another report set the proposed maximum at 24 or 25 games.

• Schools must play a minimum of 4 non-conference games.

• Conferences will be given flexibility to name their regular season champion as the recipient of their automatic bid. Freeing conferences from the expense of staging a conference tournament, if desired.

• The NCAA Tournament structure and timeline will remain the same - 68 teams, 14 sites beginning in Mid-March.

• Testing will be required 3x a week.

All I know at this point is our schedule is complete and we are waiting on tomorrow's decisions to see how it will need to be adjusted.

I was really hoping the all inclusive tournament would gain some traction. It would be a lot of fun to see truly regional brackets leading up to a final 8 or so in one central location.

So about a 2.5 week delay which probably means we'll lose a handful of home games.
