Big West Board of Directors releases statement that cancels all fall sports competition for the entire 2020-21 academic year. Affected sports include women's volleyball, men's and women's soccer and men's and women's cross country. Winter sports such as basketball currently take place in accordance with local COVID-19 guidelines. A decision on whether to proceed with scheduled spring sports is expected by late January. The Northeast Conference, Ivy League and Missouri Valley Conference are among those still set to play football during the spring semester. That situation remains to the current pandemic and logistical concerns.
