CIAA ANNOUNCES 2020-21 MEN'S AND WOMEN'S BASKETBALL SCHEDULE

CHARLOTTE, N.C.  – The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) announces its men's and women's basketball schedule for the 2020-21 regular season.  

The modified schedule will feature a 16-game conference slate, including ten divisional and six cross-divisional contests, that begins on January 9 and continues through February 20. The cross-divisional schedule, which runs through January 25, will utilize the men's and women's double-header format. 

To help ensure the health and safety of student-athletes, coaches, and staff, men's and women's games will move to a split schedule to finish out the regular season as divisional play begins on January 28. 

Following the conclusion of the regular season, teams will compete in the 2021 CIAA Basketball Tournament, set to take place February 22-27. The CIAA continues to work with the host city of Baltimore to ensure recommended health and safety protocols can be fulfilled. Details about the tournament schedule and format will be released at a later date.  

The full men's composite schedule can be found HERE and the complete women's schedule can be viewed HERE.

Additionally, Shaw University will join Bowie State, Elizabeth City State, Lincoln (PA), Virginia State and Virginia Union in Northern Division for all sports with the exception of women's tennis and football as the CIAA announced division realignment last year.

The CIAA and its membership will continue to monitor the COVID-19 landscape, while following current federal, state, local, NCAA, and campus guidelines, and make in-season updates to the schedule and game environment protocols, as necessary.
