NCAA pushes back start of college basketball, affecting UE schedule


EVANSVILLE — College sports are slowly but surely progressing ahead.

After the Big Ten Conference decided Wednesday morning it will indeed play football this fall, the NCAA announced later in the afternoon there will not be much of a delay to the start of basketball season.

The NCAA Division I council has elected to move the start date from Nov. 10 to Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving.

This change will affect at least four games for the University of Evansville, which was set to open at Purdue on Nov. 10 and travel to Ball State on Nov. 14 before hosting Southeast Missouri on Nov. 18 and Belmont on Nov. 21.

The Aces released their non-conference schedule last month, but only 20 of the 357 D-I programs had done so by Wednesday.
