The Yukon women's rattan basketball game included a game against Eumas-Lowell

The Yukon women’s basketball team will now begin the 2020-21 season against Umas-Lowell. The game, announced on Thursday, will take place on December 12 at the Gampel Pavilion. Tipff will be on SNY at 1 p.m.

This will be the first meeting between the schools.

Eumas-Lowell, interestingly, has received coaching from former Rhode Island star and NBA guard Tom Garrick, who is married to Yukon assistant Shia Ralph. River Hawks, a member of the US Wrestling Conference, is scheduled to announce its season against Marymac on Saturday.

The River Hawks also boast a local talent: Dennis Solis, a 6-foot-1 forward from Windsor, who started all 2019 games as a freshman in 2019-20.

The third-ranked Hawkeyes are currently in a 14-day isolated condition after a member of the program tested positive for COVID-19 on November 23. Another positive case has been reported since the program. Players have been training in small groups since Saturday, but as soon as possible they can resume full team work on December 8.

Due to the initial positive test, Husky had to cancel his first three non-conference games and postpone another. Their original Big East Opener at Seton Hall has been changed from December 6 to December 17.

Returning to the Big East for the first time since 2012-13, the Hookies will host Butler (December 15) and Xavier (December 19) and meet Villenova (December 22). The rest of the conference schedule is expected to be released soon.

Eumas-Lowell finished third last season 16-15 and 11-5 in league play. Like the Yukon, River Hawks recently had to suspend activities due to a positive coronavirus test.

Reached agreement with Big East Flossports

Floresports will be the new digital home for the Big East women’s basketball. As part of the one-year deal announced on Thursday, 75 regular-season games will be distributed on subscription streaming sites this season.

“The Big East Digital Network has provided unparalleled digital coverage of our women’s basketball programs over the past six years, and our partnership with Floorsports will offer a wider distribution of our sports and significant additional growth of our student-athletes and coaches. . ” Commissioner Ackerman said in a statement.

Just like how it affects UConn – it shouldn’t be. SNY already plans to broadcast 18 Husky games. The rest is likely to be between ESPN and Fox.
