I noticed that all MVC teams except Drake have indicated what early season tournament they are in.  Does anyone have an idea where Drake will be going?

Any idea how the other schools are handling it? No fans, spaced apart attendance, etc?

I don't think anyone has an idea on basketball yet. Based on outbreak patterns and how other sports returning are going I don't feel particularly optimistic.

I wonder if CBB would shift to second semester only and either do conference only or play through May if we start have reason to believe that there is a vaccine by the end of the year.

Drake is historically one of the last schools in all of D1 to announce any schedule details. Right now my guess is they want to see if there will be a season at all before they make any announcements they don't have to.

My other guess is if we didn't commit to anything by March, we won't commit until we are absolutely certain it's going to happen. COVID-19 has already cost Drake (and all other schools) millions of dollars in lost athletic revenue. Loss of Relays particularly damaging to Drake's budget.

Americans traveling by commercial aircraft are currently banned from the Bahamas.  But since the Covid situation will improve before the tournament, they will let the team in, right?

If you read the tweet, it’s been moved to Ft. Meyers.

Clearly most of us will be super-surprised if this gets played as scheduled but the event organizers must go thru the motions.
Games likely would be in what is now called "Hertz Arena" (but probably not much longer) if spectators are allowed.

Yeah that Estero play of theirs looks like a big mistake atm.

I think atm = at this moment, or something similar.  I'm still trying to figure out the meaning of the rest of that post.

Hertz sunk a bunch of money into their move to Estero and it has been nothing but a financial boondoggle for them ever since. I worked for a competitor for several years, so I take the opportunity to needle them whenever possible.

While much of the focus is on football, the Pac 12 cancelled ALL sports, including basketball, through the end of the calendar year today.

Personally, I wouldn't expect most conferences to announce decisions on basketball until Mid-October. As it stands today, I think conference only is likely if the vaccine stays on track, season scrub if it doesn't.
