The college basketball season will get underway in earnest this Wednesday, Nov. 25, but it’s already faced a few snags in the process. Some teams have already been forced to postpone, cancel or reschedule matchups because of COVID-19 outbreaks, and as recently as Monday, some multi-team events are taking hits as well.


The most notable team directly affected this week is Duke, which was expected to open its season Wednesday against Gardner-Webb. Gardner-Webb, though, had a positive COVID-19 test within its program, and Duke has opted to postpone the game. The Blue Devils will open their season on Saturday against Coppin State instead.


Elsewhere, preseason No. 2 Baylor is dealing with the virus at the top of its program. Bears coach Scott Drew announced over the weekend that he tested positive, and as a result, the Bears are out of the loaded field of the Empire Classic this week at Mohegan Sun.


As developments continue to unfold, we’ll be tracking all the latest news and notes surrounding scheduling snafus below in our tracker.
