Report: College basketball could begin Nov. 25

The NCAA women’s and men’s basketball oversight committees will forward a proposal to the Division I Council to begin the 2020-21 college basketball season on Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving, CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported.He said the two committees agreed on the date Tuesday. The Division I Council is scheduled to meet Sept. 16 and could vote on the proposal then. Whatever start date is set undoubtedly will be conditional on the coronavirus pandemic not worsening as winter approaches.Nov. 10 was the originally scheduled start date.Rothstein said the Pac-12, which announced last month that its teams wouldn’t play until January, had lobbied to the committees for a Dec. 4 start date but said a source indicated the conference “could probably work with” the Nov. 25 start.
