Maryland men’s basketball tries to plan around schedule uncertainty

Before the season began, Coach Mark Turgeon knew his program needed to have both a schedule and a list of schools he could call if it needed to find a game on short notice. That’s how all teams are operating, with the coronavirus pandemic forcing abrupt cancellations when positive tests emerge in programs. At Maryland, Mark Bialkoski, director of basketball operations, tries to plan around the uncertainty — communicating with other programs and embracing flexibility.

After Monmouth canceled, Maryland scheduled Towson to play on the same date. But the day before the matchup, Towson had to cancel, too. Turgeon said his staff talked to around 15 or 20 schools, looking for a new opponent. The Terps landed on a road game against James Madison this Saturday.

On Wednesday, George Mason canceled its Friday game at Maryland after a person in the Patriots’ program tested positive for the virus. This time,

Louisville became the latest high-profile college basketball program to pause activities due to issues with COVID-19 on Thursday night, when the school announced an indefinite halt after someone in the program tested positive for COVID-19. The Cardinals are off to a 4-0 start, but their game against UNC Greensboro on Friday will be canceled. Louisville is next scheduled to play Dec. 9 against No. 4 Wisconsin.

The school has not determined if that game will be affected by the COVID-19 issues in the program. Louisville is far from the only program to be hit with scheduling problems related to the coronavirus this season. Dozens of games have been canceled or postponed as the sport begins its season with the pandemic sweeping the nation.

As developments continue to unfold, we’ll be tracking all the latest news and notes surrounding scheduling snafus below in our tracker.

2020 sports schedule: Four Top 25 college basketball games on deck; An updated look at this year’s calendar

This year has been like any other due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and that includes the sports season. When the pandemic hit in March, sporting events around the world were canceled or postponed. Some leagues and tournaments were forced to cancel, others paused with the hope of restarting, but all had to adjust in some way.

As the world continues to navigate the pandemic, many sports leagues that paused in March have since created a plan to restart found a safe way to carry out their season. For instance, the NBA and NHL had “bubbles” for players to live in. In other sports, fans are not permitted at many events and new health protocols have been put in place.

Fantasy Football Week 13: Starts and sits, sleepers and busts for every game on the NFL schedule

December brings holiday cheer and cold temperatures. Only one of those things actually impacts a football game. Now is a good time of year to spend a couple of minutes each week checking the weather reports before finalizing your lineups. Cold temperatures will impact dome teams and squads that usually play in warm weather cities. Snow isn’t a big deal unless it’s coming down in heaps. Rain also isn’t that big of a deal unless it’s pouring. Wind, however, is the biggest factor. We’ve seen it already this season. If you’re starting players in a game with winds blowing at 25-plus mph, think twice.

Is there a ‘Thursday Night Football’ game tonight? NFL schedule, TV channels for Week 13

There won’t be a “Thursday Night Football” game between the Ravens and the Cowboys in Week 13, although Fox has found a way to put a new spin on football this Thursday night.

The NFL rescheduled Ravens-Cowboys for Tuesday in Week 13 due to a COVID-19 outbreak on Baltimore. Fox didn’t want its prime-time TV slot to go to total waste, though. The network shifted the MLS Western Conference Semifinal between Sporting Kansas City and Minnesota United to Thursday night from a previously scheduled Wednesday time slot. That’s Thursday night world football to you.

Fox retains broadcast rights to the Dallas-Baltimore game, but it’ll be an 8:05 p.m. ET start on Tuesday, Dec. 8. That followed the league being forced to shift the Ravens’ Week 12 game in Pittsburgh back from Thanksgiving and then back again from a Sunday afternoon slot before it eventually got played Wednesday. Baltimore could still

COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc with schedule

CLOSE

On a day when COVID-19 knocked out the third of Arizona’s first four games, a Pac-12 opener against Colorado, the Wildcats scrambled to at least restore their nonconference schedule.

Arizona added a Dec. 12 game against New Mexico State to effectively replace its canceled Nov. 29 game with UTEP. That gets the Wildcats back to a seven-game nonconference schedule — except that their next game, against Northern Colorado on Saturday, also appears doubtful.

In what might surprise exactly nobody at this point, the Bears have already canceled two games since announcing on Nov. 25 that their men’s basketball program has paused activity due to COVID-19 issues.

A Northern Colorado spokesman said Tuesday that Saturday’s game at Arizona was still scheduled to be played as of that point, and UA basketball operations director Ryan Reynolds said he has not been told the game is off.

However, Northern Colorado has not
