Ivy League announces basketball scheduling changes for 1920-21, 1921-22 Seasons

PRINCETON, N.J. – Beginning with the 2020-21 season, the Ivy League men’s and women’s basketball conference slate will take on a new form.

  • Conference season will move from an eight-week to a 10-week schedule.
  • Next season, league play will begin for all 16 teams on Jan. 2, 2021
  • League’s signature back-to-back weekends will be featured three times during conference play
  • The new format continues to prioritize and balance student-athlete time demands
  • Each team will conclude the regular season with a single-game travel partner contest

“Understanding that scheduling is always a challenge with competing interests, this new format accomplishes two of our chief priorities: to create a structure that is fair and equitable over time and continues to minimize the impact on missed class time for our student-athletes,” Ivy League Executive Director Robin Harris said.

“The format decompresses the schedule with two additional weeks of conference play and enables our teams the opportunity to compete at the highest level both in the classroom and on the court.”

The decision follows a year-long process with key constituents throughout the league including coaches, administrators and student-athletes.

The opportunity to reexamine and modify the structure of the schedule coincides with the change in Princeton’s academic calendar with fall semester exams moving from January to December, beginning with the 2020-21 academic year.

In total, the schedule will consist of six one-opponent weekends and three of the league’s signature Friday and Saturday back-to-back weekends. Each team will also have a contest on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

The schedule format has been approved for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 season.

Ivy League basketball schedule structure
Week 1 – one game
Week 2 – two games (back-to-back)
Week 3 – two games (Saturday and MLK Day)
Week 4 – one game
Week 5 – one game
Week 6 – two games (back-to-back)
Week 7 – one game
Week 8 – two games (back-to-back)
Week 9 – one game
Week 10 – one game (vs. travel partner)

Mountain West member, San Diego State stays at #4 in Men’s Basketball National Polls

 

SAN DIEGO – With a pair of victories over Wyoming and UNLV last week, San Diego State men’s basketball remained the only unbeaten team in Division I and also remained the No. 4 ranked team in this week’s Associated Press Top-25 Poll as well as the USA Today Coaches Poll.

The Aztecs’ No. 4 ranking in the AP Poll continues to be the highest in program history. It is the first time it has been ranked this high for multiple weeks in a season, having been No. 4 for one week in 2010-11. This week also marks the fourth time the team has been No. 4 in the coaches poll, the second time it has done so in a single season (previously on Jan. 24 & Feb. 21, 2011), and the first time it has been achieved in back-to-back weeks.

SDSU is ranked for the eighth consecutive week this season.  After initially appearing in the No. 25 spot in the AP Poll on Dec. 9, the Aztecs climbed to No. 20, No. 15, No. 13, into the top-10 with back-to-back weekly rankings at No. 7 and now back-to-back weeks at No. 4.  The Aztecs 1,408 points are the second most the program has ever garnered, trailing only last week’s 1,422 points, and move San Diego State to within 26 points of No. 3 Kansas.

Today’s poll ranking, released on Jan. 27, marks the third time that SDSU has appeared in the AP Top-25 on this date and matches it’s the highest ranking for the program on this date.

Jan. 27, 2011   No. 4 (NCAA Tournament Sweet-16 appearance w/ Kawhi Leonard)
Jan. 27, 2012   No. 13
Jan. 27, 2014   No. 5 (NCAA Tournament Sweet-16 appearance)

Overall, this marks the 74th week the program has been ranked in the AP Top-25 and all have come since the start of the 2010-11 season.  Those 74 weeks are the 23rd most for any school in the nation in that time frame; ahead of Maryland and Oregon (67 weeks), Indiana (62 weeks) and UCLA (44 weeks).  This week’s No. 4 ranking marks the 25th time the program has appeared in the AP Top-10.

The Aztecs 21-0 start is currently the longest winning streak in the nation and the longest to open a season in program history, passing the 2010-11 team that started 20-0. In addition, the 21-game win streak is also the longest in school history, eclipsing the 2013-14 team’s 20-0 mid-season streak.  Both those teams won Mountain West regular-season championships, the 2010-11 team won the tournament championship, and each reached the Sweet-16 of the NCAA Tournament.

In addition, the latest NET (NCAA Evaluation Tool), which replaced RPI this year as the primary sorting tool for evaluating teams during the Division I men’s basketball season, ranks the Aztecs No. 2 in the nation.  San Diego State has spent the most days at No. 1, 21 in total and 17 in a row from Dec. 22, 2019 to Jan. 7, 2020. NET relies on game results, strength of schedule, game location, scoring margin, net offensive and defensive efficiency, and the quality of wins and losses to create its rankings.
