College basketball sets return date for November 25th


The NCAA Division I Council is setting a November 25th return to play date for men’s and women’s college basketball more than eight months after March Madness was canceled due to COVID-19.

That means practices can start on or around October 14th based on NCAA guidelines.

However, the council has yet to announce any COVID-19 testing procedures or game day protocols which are reportedly to be addressed in the coming weeks.
