Per the TU, the ‘Aints will travel to Patrick Gym for a non-spectator game. I guess even with no fans at the TU Center, Western Ave is too dangerous for them

Losers. It was never about the fans.

After making the call early in the summer, I consider Union College and Rensselaer (and their conference) as bell weather indicators of the potential direction where we are headed (intermediate time-frame) see links below:

I am losing faith of seeing any prospect of seeing basketball.....

Sadly, I agree. Whenever I see the odds on who's going to win a game, I think the odds should be if there's going to be a game instead.

Anyway, both the men and women were picked fourth in the preseason poll yesterday and Cam Healy was all-conference.

The Ivy League has just cancelled all winter sports.  I know the Ivies go to the beat of a different drum than other conferences but it's never a good sign and that others may follow.

Thank you for your alert .... I provided the link to the Ivy League announcement:

The bell weather is trending poorly... My opinion America East will be the next conference to cancelled.  Not based on anything... just a gut feeling....

This rates an UGH!!

Well the Siena Saints have gone on pause .... two members within the inner circle have tested positive....

There is NO WAY that mostly mid major programs are effected. Especially with the Covid surges across the county.  The larger programs are either isolating their teams or not notifing positive Covid cases. 

If football teams with 100+ players can do it then I would think that a basketball team with 15 players can do it . I guess only time will tell.
