Anyone know if any decision has been made regarding this season? It would seem to me plans would have to be in place by now if they were going to play. I've googled and read everything I could but can't find an answer. Anyone in the know have any insights? Thanks.

As we approach September, is there any word yet on second semester basketball or does it look like there may not be a season? I ask because today Swarthmore has closed its campus to anyone not attending the college.

And while it may not be a popular opinion, I truly feel that Swarthmore should be awarded a National Championship. Throughout my life, many National Championships came as a result of voting. Swarthmore was #1 in ever single poll last year. Every Single Poll. I would have no problem with an asterisk being placed next to them in record books, but it just feels hollow that a team that was #1 for the entire year isn't named National Champs. Again, I know it isn't a popular opinion, I just think Swat deserves it.

Here is hoping the second semester brings back at least a partial schedule and we can enjoy what we all love.

Not sure if you were all aware of this, but the following is the update to athletics at Swarthmore College. All Fall and First Semester Sports are cancelled. That means at least 8-10 basketball games will either be moved to second semester or not played even if there is a season.

"What we know is that there will be no athletic competition until after the fall semester. We will work continuously with the Swarthmore COVID-19 team, our own COVID-19 team, the Centennial Conference COVID-19 team, and the NCAA to consider any options for competition for fall/winter sports in the winter and/or spring."

Well is name is footballfan so that is why I said it. I will not be lectured by a first time poster on here. I went to IC, support its sports (got engaged at an IC football game and am friends with the last two football coaches) and am an IC basketball supporter for almost 40 years. I went to some games this year and they played Swat more physical than I had previously seen them play. I thought it bordered on dirty play, hence why Landry was so upset. Again, they had to play this way as it was their only chance to win. I thought the IC coach did a great job preparing them for it. Swat was the best DIII team in the country this year and should be named national champs. They were #1 in every single poll this year. Every. Single. Poll.

“Way over the top physical and dirty? Hahahaha. You must be related to the announcer on the broadcast who said there were two “cheap shots” on O ‘Dell. You Swat fans are priceless. It was a well played playoff game between two good teams. Sorry Swat didn’t blow them out by 40, like they are accustomed too, but maybe, just maybe, give Ithaca a little credit for being able to hang with the team of destiny. It has been mentioned here that Swat fans don’t post on this board and most Swat fans are respectful of their opponent. Calling Ithaca dirty is just laughable and out of line....nobody cares where you graduated from so prefacing your take with the fact that you are an Ithaca grad, therefore your take has some validity is preposterous. And for the kid with the headband being concerned with the crowd....being called a faggot and a homo is bound to get your attention. Heard it half a dozen times if I heard it once as I was sitting directly in front of a row of Swat students. Over the line.

I won't address most of this garbage from a first time poster, but yeah, I think I may be in a unique position to talk about both teams. I live about ten miles from IC and get to see them play all the time. This was by far the most physical they have played all year from what I have seen. In fact, it wasn't close. I am not saying it wasn't a great game plan as it was the only way they could have won. You obviously don't know anything about Swat as they were in many many close games this year. That is why they didn't get rattled. Maybe you should stick to football as you clearly don't know basketball at all. I have been going to IC basketball games since '81. You?

This was a very interesting game for me as my son played for Swarthmore and Ithaca College is my and my wife's alma mater. I waited to post so as to see what others thought of the game. There is no mention of the horrific zone that Swat played the first quarter of the game. I didn't get it at all. When they switched out of it, they played much better. I thought Ithaca College played way over the top physical and almost dirty at times. I re-watched it and I stand by it. In fact, it was worse the second time I watched it. The crowd got into IC's shooter (kid with headband) head and he seemed more worried about what the crowd was saying to him.

I am so sad for the seniors on Swat who were shooting for a National Championship and now don't have the chance. The two bigs will be very hard to replace as they dominated almost everyone they played over the years. Two great young men.

This was Swat's year - They were #1 in every single poll this year and I hope they are named Champs. It would only be fitting.

What is everyone's opinion of shutting down the Hopkin's gym to spectators? If they wanted to do this, then let some other college host it. I can't imagine being a parent and not being able to see my kid play in the NCAA's. Just doesn't seem right.

Congrats to Coach Josh Loeffler and the rest of the Hopkin's team on a fantastic win. Josh is a quality guy and if Swat couldn't win it, glad he did.

Well that is pretty wild rumors. So much so, I had to call my son at 12:30am to let him know about them.

Swarthmore better watch out, if they keep winning too much the college will drop the sport like they did with football.   ;D

Now that made me laugh. Well done! You win the internet today!

Fantastic game between two top programs and top coaches. It was a nail biter right up until the final whistle. Coach F had his team ready to play Swat. The game was incredibly intense and fun to watch. Swat's new press breaker is fun to watch. Catch it if you can sometime. Nice way to start the year.
