Conference Carolinas Unveils 2021 Basketball Schedule
GREENVILLE, S.C. – Conference Carolinas has officially unveiled its 2021 conference basketball schedule.
The 2021 conference basketball schedule features 16 games and it is unique in that it has been designed to allow member institutions the ability to play back-to-back games against the same league foe on certain weekends where applicable due to the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"I would like to applaud our Directors of Athletics and our men's and women's basketball coaches for their hard work and efforts to determine what was best for Conference Carolinas with this schedule," Commissioner Chris Colvin said. "All involved worked diligently together to come up with different options with the group agreeing that it made the most sense to utilize the format we are unveiling today. We have a tremendous product in Conference Carolinas basketball and I am excited to see our teams competing for the conference regular season title starting in January of 2021."
2020-2021 Women's Basketball Schedule
The Conference Carolinas Board of Directors unanimously originally agreed in October to officially start the conference basketball season in January of 2021.
Conference Carolinas men's and women's basketball teams will return to campus for practice for the start of league play on Dec. 28, 2020.
The 2021 Conference Carolinas men's and women's basketball schedule will officially begin on Wednesday, Jan. 13. The final date of regular season competition for Conference Carolinas men's and women's basketball will be on Thursday, Feb. 25.
