LA GRANDE – The Cascade Collegiate Conference (CCC) announced its revised conference basketball schedule Friday. Originally, conference play was set to begin on Dec. 4, 2020, with the CCC Council of Presidents voting earlier this week to push that date back.
The CCC conference basketball schedule is now set to start Jan. 8, 2021 and will run through March 2. Because of the reduced schedule to 18 conference games, the decision was made to eliminate the postseason tournament for this year. Automatic qualifiers for the NAIA national tournament will be determined based on regular-season action.
“While our start dates may have moved, our commitment to doing everything we can to provide competition for our student-athletes in a safe and responsible manner remains our focus,” added CCC Commissioner Robert Cashell.
It was announced last week that the Return to Play Plan includes strict daily wellness screening, weekly PCR testing and stringent procedures for mitigating against the introduction and spread of COVID-19. PCR testing is required for the sports of basketball, wrestling, football, soccer and volleyball.
