Basketball stock

Matt Norlander of CBS Sports is reporting that Utah has pulled out of the South Dakota-based Crossover Classic, which includes the West Virginia University men’s basketball team, scheduled for Nov. 25-27.

In the same thread, Norlander reports that Utah is concerned that the rising rate of COVID-19 infections in the state could jeopardize its Pac-12 season, scheduled to start on Dec. 3.

This event, originally the 2020-21 Battle 4 Atlantis, originally included Duke, but the Blue Devils withdrew and were replaced by Dayton. The field right now is West Virginia, Dayton, Memphis, Texas A&M, Ohio State, Wichita State, and Creighton.

The Crossover Classic is scheduled to start on Nov. 25 with the first game being WVU against Texas A&M. West Virginia could only have played Utah on the final day of the event, Nov. 27.
