The University of North Dakota has announced signed contracts with a handful of schools, aiming to fill shuffled non-conference basketball schedules that were heavily affected due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The NCAA moved the start of the basketball season to November 25th, which created an upheaval in the pre-conference portion and teams across the nation have been working continually to contract games-- with safety as the utmost factor-- prior to The Summit League's beginning of an altered league schedule set to begin Jan. 2.


The latest NCAA protocols were released this past Friday, Nov. 13 by the Sport Science Institute, creating the roadmap for teams to be able to test, travel and minimize risk to student-athletes and staff. The newest installment of recommendations set the current standard for testing and updated the transmission risk classification for each NCAA sport. UND is announcing the games that have been contractually signed from both schools with these standards in place and will announce further games that are currently in the works as they are contracted.


For the non-conference segment of the season, no fans would be allowed at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center, should UND host games. The athletics department is evaluating options beyond January 1 to potentially include fans in its home venues for various sports.
