Well, actually, if that was the reason then all of these schools (including W&M) would continue playing despite positive Covid tests instead of postponing or cancelling games. The reason they are playing is all about the $$$$$$$$$$. The reason they are quarantining is so that those invincible 18-20 year olds don't infect other populations more at risk (plus, of course, even stud athletes are suffering long-term effects). So, again, the reason they are playing is to be able to reap in NCAA Tournament dollars.

Yeah, that's wrong. This is conspiracy theory, myopic, edge-of-conspiracy theory at it's best. I've already got you on ignore, so I'm not responding further. But this is nonsense and it needed to be said.

We should try to schedule GW. Their game vs South Carolina on the 13th was Covid canceled. The geography is right and I'd imagine Coach Christian would be OK with a trip to Williamsburg.

Frankly, other than the tv contract, why are they playing as the virus sweeps across the nation in horrific fashion and 3000+ people are dying every day now.?

Duke is just canceling the rest of their non-conference schedule. lol

But also sending players home for Christmas. If it is all abut their health and not spreading COVID, shouldn't the team hunker down in the campus bubble sans the rest of the student body?

It depends on how important the season is this year. If you aren't going to let them go home, at least have something for them to do related to the holiday. Can't do community service stuff given the covid. Tough situation.

To be fair, I think the only game they had left was against Gardner Webb (And Charleston Southern, but CSU already announced they had to postpone/cancel their game with Duke due to their issues with covid), so it's really only cancelling one game.

They start ACC play on Wednesday the 16th

Perhaps some special classes could be held for the team on campus to advance their academic career. No doubt UNC, among others may be facilitating such a course of action.

If they come back and quarantine for 7-10 days including testing before leaving and before coming back, then the risk of spread is no greater than what our entire student body did prior to coming back last semester, and will be doing prior to the next semester. Granted, the national situation is worse now than it was in the summer, but there are actions to be taken to mitigate the risk.

There are certainly advantages to staying on campus in a bubble, not the least of which is having greater control/awareness over what the players are doing. Hopefully the decision is being made taking all of that into consideration.

Duke lost two non conference home games for the first time in like 40 years... that's why they are canceling their other games. No more, no less.

also, lol'd at UNC helping athletes advance their academic careers.

What a shock that Coach K is grandstanding on something that is much less than it appears (canceling one game) and after he got his butt kicked in two non-conference games.

Reminds me of the Grayson Allen tripping incidents of a few years ago. After the third time it happened, Coach K sternly noted that he would not tolerate it and dramatically announced he was "indefinitely" suspending his best player. Allen sat out the next game against a mediocre at best VT squad, which Duke lost, then was magically restored to the lineup missing only one game.

It's being reported on Twitter that the UVA game is rescheduled for Dec 22nd. Looks like we fit in that pay game after all.

Correct. As of today Virginia and William & Mary expect to play Dec. 22, next Tuesday, in a rescheduled game, according to sources. If it is played, it would be UVA’s first game in 18 days and potentially the last noncon game on the Hoos’ schedule.

Feel sorry for Gonzaga when UVA takes out their frustrations on them after that loss on the 22nd.

Kent State took UVA into OT at UVA before UVA beat them 71-64 on 12/4. They will be rusty and we will have 3 games under our belt. Key to game will be the play of Mehkel and Ben, Scott PG play, and hot 3 point shooting....
