New scheduling options that incorporate multiple-team events could be in place by the 2020-21 men’s and women’s basketball seasons. The Division I Council on Wednesday introduced legislation recommended by the Division I Men’s and Women’s Basketball Oversight Committees that would change the way multiple-team events are counted and incorporated into regular-season scheduling. The new multiteam-event legislation would allow Division I schools to schedule up to 28 regular-season games and participate in one multiple-team event that includes up to three games; schedule 29 regular-season games and a multiple-team event that includes up to two games; or schedule 29 games without participating in a multiple-team event. The proposal now will be considered by the NCAA membership, and a formal vote to approve the legislation could be taken by the council during its quarterly meeting in January or April of 2020. If approved, the change would go into effect Aug. 1, 2020, for the 2020-21 basketball season. – Read More
