This should not be considered much of a surprise. The college basketball season will not be starting until Nov. 25, well after the initially scheduled date of Nov. 13, in Austin, Texas.
Much of the non-conference schedule is still in flux at the moment. The Zags will be travelling to Orlando for bubble play over the Thanksgiving holiday, where they will play the as originally scheduled Orlando Invitational. The Jimmy V Classic in New York City has also been moved to Orlando, and the Zags will take on Tennessee as well. A previously sort-of-announced Baylor game very well could also take place in Orlando.
As it currently stands, Gonzaga’s scheduled games against North Carolina Central, USC, North Florida, and California-State Bakersfield all need to be rescheduled because they occur before the official start of the season. On top of that, the Pac 12 is still officially not playing ball until the start of the school year, which means Gonzaga’s two other games against Washington and Arizona are off the table, at the moment.
The situation, understandably, is rather fluid. All that matters is we are getting some sort of basketball season.
