After the fall seasons were postponed, Rambler fans will finally have Loyola sports to watch in the not-so-distant future. Men’s and women’s college basketball are scheduled to start their seasons Nov. 25, according to a Sept. 16 NCAA press release.

The NCAA said the decision to start the day before Thanksgiving was due to “at least three-quarters” of Division I schools either finishing their semesters or moving the rest of the classes and exams online by that date, according to the release. This will create “a more controlled and less populated campus environment that may reduce the risk of COVID-19 that can occur between student-athletes and the broader student body population.
