The college basketball season is officially upon us. Oh yeah...remember that first half of the St. John’s-Creighton game in the Big East Tournament back in mid-March? That was the last live major college basketball event until the cancellations of the conference tournaments and eventually, the NCAA Tournament.

In just over two months from now, the sport will be getting ready to make its triumphant return, as November 25th has been announced as the official start date for the 2020-2021 men’s and women’s college basketball seasons. That’s Thanksgiving Eve.

The season was originally set to begin on November 10th, so a two-week delay isn’t exactly the end of the world. Here are some more details on the upcoming season, according to Andy Katz:

All of this probably means that Mizzou’s season will be starting with the Myrtle Beach Invitational, now locates in Orlando. The schedule is going to look a lot different, but please let us have Braggin’ Rights in St. Louis and the Border War in Kansas City. PLEASE!

And on Election Day November 3, people in Boone Country registered to vote (and please do) can do so at Mizzou Arena. Mizzou Athletics announced on Wednesday that Mizzou Arena will serve as a polling location for the 2020 Election, as it will be one of the largest voting centers in the state of Missouri. Mizzou Arena will be open from 6:00 a.m. CT to 7:00 p.m. CT on November 3rd.

A message from Cuonzo:
