Summit League implements ‘no contest’ policy

The Summit League’s Joint Council voted Dec. 28 unanimously to change its COVID-19 No Contest policy for the remainder of the 2021-22 men’s and women’s basketball league season.
Originally, teams that were unable to play a scheduled league game due to positive COVID-19 cases and/or quarantine requirements would have to forfeit those contests this season, impacting league standings.
The approved adjustment allows for institutions to request that the league declare games as no contests if a team does not have eight or more players and one or more coaches available due to COVID-19 protocols. If a team does not have that number of players or coaches due to COVID-19 protocols or local health authorities require a team to discontinue participation, the game will be declared a no contest and will not be rescheduled.
For seeding purposes regarding The Summit League Basketball Championships, if teams have played a different number of League games due to no contests, winning percentage will be used as the first criteria to determine seeds.
Any changes to COVID-19 policies regarding spring sports sponsored by The Summit League will be discussed at a later date.
