The college basketball season is due to get underway today. The season was originally slated to tip off on November 10th but that was pushed back due to the ongoing pandemic.
There’s already been a fair amount of chaos even before the first game is played.
A number of coaches have tested positive for COVID-19 and several teams have seen their matchups canceled or postponed, including No. 1 Baylor. On the women’s side, No. 3 Connecticut has suspended all team activities after a member of the program tested positive.
Today’s action kicks off at 11 am Eastern.
Lamar will visit number-18 Houston. Northwestern State will play at number-13 Texas Tech. UT-Rio Grande Valley goes to Austin to face number-22 Texas.
Houston Baptist will play at TCU. SMU is hosting Sam Houston. Tomorrow, North Texas will host Mississippi Valley State.
