The Gulf South Conference Board of Directors has approved a 20-game conference schedule for men’s and women’s basketball beginning on December 9, 2020.
For the 2020-21 academic year, the GSC will utilize divisional play in basketball. The schedule will feature a combination of single game matchups and two-game series against the same opponents on consecutive days at the same location. The format is intended to streamline testing protocols and reduce travel costs.
Additionally, the conference will implement a mirrored schedule, with the men and women playing at opposite sites, eliminating all doubleheaders.
MEN’S BASKETBALL SCHEDULE | WOMEN’S BASKETBALL SCHEDULE
With no change to the schedule for NCAA Regionals, the GSC Basketball Championships will keep their dates, with the quarterfinals set to begin on March 2, 2021. More information on those tournaments will be released closer to that time.
Updates for Football, Soccer, and Volleyball
Since the cancellation of the 2020 NCAA Fall Championships and the subsequent decision by the league’s Board of Directors to delay any competition in football, soccer, and volleyball until at least January 1, conference administrators and coaches have worked diligently to evaluate any potential options for meaningful competition in the spring.
There will not be a spring conference schedule for football. Institutions will have the discretion to schedule events on their own.
Men’s soccer, women’s soccer, and volleyball will each have a “Spring Championship Series” utilizing a format that features group play, based on geography, followed by a series-ending bracketed event. More details will be released in the coming weeks.
