Starting next week the campus (and every campus across the country) will be a de facto bubble through late Jan. Yes the season will happen. Get your negative attitude out here.
If every campus is a bubble (no one enters or leaves), then interscholastic basketball will be impossible.

Not making a statement about what I think will happen. Just critiquing your logic.

It’s still discussion of UConn basketball
Two factors that are important to remember in hopes of a NCAA season starting next week and eventually finishing;

a) Smaller rosters than football. Less moving parts, less testing, smaller bubbles, more teams per bubble...
b) Easier scheduling than football. No problem having games back-to-back followed by six days off. Much easier to make adjustments when needed...

There will be roadblocks, but it will work. Yes, some teams have paused practices, but over 90% of teams are up and running.

11/27 Hartford at Connecticut 8pm CBSSN
This is good news, I was worried these games would be on My9, which I don't get anymore. I wonder if this has a connection to the FB deal.

Can we get Pete Gillen again do the game on CBSSN ? I always liked CBSSN during our AAC years - well, at least Gillen can be enthusiastic.

I don’t care how late they announce these games to be scheduled - You’re telling me the networks in Connecticut Wouldn’t jump at the chance to televise a UConn game instead of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Colorado State versus Wyoming college football ? give me a break. If you uconns playing , contracts will be broken and games will be televised. How great would uconn vs Central be the Wednesday before Thanksgiving night and then uconn vs Hartford the Friday after Thanksgiving at night ? that would be beautiful. Two nice warm up games sandwiched In between Thursday football - I know I’m reaching , but it’s been a hell of a year can I have something to look forward to? Lol

What about the CCSu game on the 25th ?
All of the Big East games listed below are confirmed. I see an opening at 8pm on FS1, with no game yet. Seems like a spot for UCONN game to me.

11/25 Oakland at Xavier 12pm FS1
11/25 Fairfield at Providence 2pm FS1
11/25 UMBC at Georgetown 4pm FS1
11/25 Western Michigan at Butler 6pm FS1
11/25 Villanova vs. Boston College 7pm ESPN
11/25 Creighton vs. South Dakota State 7pm ESPN2
11/25 St. Peter's at St. John's (NY) 7pm FS2

I love these local games--I really hope they happen. Cupcake games against UMaine are totally meaningless, but it's really cool to see teams I've watched practice on the court in action. I've mentioned before on here that I'm consistently really, really impressed with the UHart and Yale programs. They can't recruit at our level, but they're as well coached as most any high-major D1 programs.

And UHart is doing it with WAY less resources than the high-major schools. Their "film sessions" are the players sitting in the bleachers with a projector like the one schools were using 20 years ago... but those players are totally bought in. UConn has a literal movie theatre with reclining seats, lol. They've got the two coaches that have been around forever, and I expect a pretty impressive mid-major level coaching tree.

I understand everyone has not seen my post in the past year. The Big East TV deal states that every game to be on TV. Fox Sports owns the rights to all the Big East home games. Fox Sports sells about 20+ games to CBS Sports. 20+ on CBSSN. 4 games on CBS. I believe it's a 2 school max on CBS Sports. So, you will find your teams homes games on FOX/FS1/FS2/CBS or CBSSN for it's men's games.

Fox Sports for men's basketball also has the rights 30+ Big Ten games. 22 Pac-12 games & 16-32 MWC games. So, FS1 has the space for it's Big East games.

Yeah strange they have nothing on fs1 in the 8-10 pm window. Maybe it’s soccer or formula 1 racing. Wonderful. Lol

The listing is just from each school that has put out it's times and networks. That slot should be for the UCONN game. Zap2it, list a spot for college hoops. If the game is not played, some other game will move in that slot. Easy to move games, with no fans.

What are the chances if those first two games end up being played that they will be televised?
Hopefully 100%. Half of the UHart women’s team has/ had covid though. Hopefully the men are healthy so we can get a game in.

Any update on the television info for the 11/25 game?
Any info on whether the game is going to be played at all? It's still not on the schedule and we're only 4 days out.

There's not too much planning since there are no fans and no tickets. CCSU just needs to get on a bus for 30-45 minutes and UConn gets 3 refs and they play. Well I guess the television coverage needs coordination.

I just looked at the schedule and they still don't have the Legends Classic and the NC St. game on there either.
