HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — The Gulf South Conference office announced on Tuesday its modified basketball schedules for the 2020-21 season, and The University of Alabama in Huntsville will tip-off the new 20-game slate on Dec. 11.
For the 2020-21 academic year, the GSC will utilize divisional play in basketball. The schedule will feature a combination of single game matchups and two-game series against the same opponent on consecutive days at the same location. The format is intended to streamline testing protocols and reduce travel costs.
Additionally, the conference will implement a mirrored schedule, with the women and men playing at opposite sites, eliminating all doubleheaders.
With no change to the schedule for NCAA regionals, the GSC Basketball Championships will keep their dates, with the quarterfinals set to begin on March 2, 2021. More information on those tournaments will be released closer to that time.
Details about seating capacity at Kelly Court at Spragins Hall and other ticketing information will be released in the coming days.
