The Vulcans open the season at a tip-off challenge hosted by Charleston (W.Va.) on Nov. 12-13. Cal U will face the host Golden Eagles on the initial day before playing Glenville State after both teams advanced to the semifinals of the 2021 Mountain East Conference (MEC) Tournament.
,
Cal U will play its first home game in 625 days on Nov. 16 when it hosts Franklin Pierce (N.H.), which advanced to the semifinals of the 2020 Northeast-10 (NE-10) Conference Tournament. The Vulcans then face 2021 MEC Champion Fairmont State at home on Nov. 18 before traveling to face Shippensburg, which advanced to the finals of the 2020 PSAC Championship, in non-conference play on Nov. 23.

In December, the Vulcans start PSAC Crossover play with a weekend road trip to Bloomsburg and East Stroudsburg on Dec. 3-4.

Michigan State Schedule Updates: Football versus Ohio State, basketball versus Eastern Michigan


The Michigan State Spartans travel to Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, Nov. 20 to take on the Buckeyes. On Monday, the kickoff time was announced for noon Eastern Time. The game will broadcast on ABC.

If Michigan State is able to beat Maryland Terrapins at home this Saturday, the game a week later against Ohio State is going to have massive implications on the Big Ten East race, as MSU still controls its own destiny despite last week’s loss to the Purdue Boilermakers. The Buckeyes are currently the only undefeated team in Big Ten Conference play (6-0) and if Ohio State wins the remainder of its games — starting this Saturday with the same Purdue team that just upset Michigan State — will win the Big Ten East. MSU’s only path to the Big Ten Championship game is to win its last three games.

Both Michigan State and Ohio State are 8-1 overall this season, as the Buckeyes suffered a non-conference loss to the Oregon Ducks on Sept. 11. The Buckeyes have the all-time series lead over the Spartans 34-15. MSU’s last victory over OSU was in 2015 — and the Spartans advanced to the College Football Playoff that year.

Before Michigan State can focus on Ohio State, the Spartans must defeat Maryland, and bounce back from last week’s road loss to Purdue. That game kicks off at 4 p.m. in East Lansing on Saturday and can be watched on FOX.

Michigan State Men’s Basketball schedule update:

In addition to the football game in Columbus on the same day, the Michigan State men’s basketball program also announced a schedule update. The Spartans will take on the Eastern Michigan Eagles at 5 p.m. on Nov. 20 — a strategically placed tip-off time for when the football game will likely be over. The game can be viewed on Big Ten+, which requires a subscription.

Queen’s health: Palace to put Queen’s schedule under ‘constant review’ after health scare | Royal | News


Royal commentator Roya Nikkhah reflected on the news that the Queen will not be going to the Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (Cop26) due to health reasons. This comes after the Queen was told to cancel her visit to Northern Ireland last week and rest by her medical professionals. While speaking on the Today Programme, Ms Nikkhah argued the Palace will put the Queen’s schedule on constant review now.

She said the Queen’s secretaries will now be looking at a “gear change” and considering carefully what events the Queen needs to attend.

Ms Nikkhah said: “I think there will be a reassessment and possibly a slight gear change in the kind of work the Queen does, the distances she travels.

“I don’t think we will see, all being well that she is able to continue with public duties in the way that she will be.

“I think we will still see her out and about as much as she feels and her doctors feel she can.

“I think there will be a gear change.

“I think her private secretaries and her diary secretaries will look at her engagements coming and think what does the Queen really need to be at and what does she feel she can really do.

“I think that will be a constant review going forward now.”

The palace released a statement yesterday announcing the Queen would not be attending the climate change event. 

Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer wrote: “In short, the Queen is up to light duties such as reading and signing paperwork and holding virtual meetings but she is not considered well enough to undertake external engagements at the moment.”

ITV News’ Chris Ship tweeted: “The Queen’s decision to pull out of the big UN summit on such an important issue as climate change is a blow.

“She was a big draw for the world leaders. We are told that she hopes no other leader will use her absence as a reason not to attend.”

Other members of the Royal Family including the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will still attend the climate conference.

NBL fixture: Perth Wildcats avoid early travel to COVID hotspots as schedule gets pushed back


The NBL have delayed the start of the season until December 3 and ensured the Perth Wildcats will avoid the nation’s major COVID hotspots until January 30.

And all Wildcats players will be vaccinated for the start of the season, avoiding any potential issues with changing laws.

The league has today released a fixture heavily designed around playing at venues with fans in attendance while avoiding border closures.

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE FULL FIXTURE

Matches were initially scheduled to start on November 18 but the later tip-off has eased the COVID-19 pressures on the NBL.

The fixture will see the Wildcats playing seven of their first nine games at home, with their only travel to Adelaide and Brisbane during that time.

The 36ers, Brisbane and New Zealand will all play in Perth twice in the early rounds.

Perth won’t play in NSW until January 30 and their first match in Victoria isn’t until February 26.

“It’s a credit to the league that they have been able to put together a fixture that presents the least amount if interruptions that seems possible,” Wildcats CEO Troy Georgiu said.

“Our priority was for our members to be able to attend games. The fact that we have a lot of home games during school holidays is great. People can watch summer hoops at night and we have some mouthwatering games during that time.

“We’ve got early games like Vic Law playing against his former team and a new JackJumpers team that is filled with former Wildcats.”

With 28 games scheduled across a 10-team competition, the Wildcats will play Adelaide four times and the remaining teams on three occasions. They won’t play any of the Victorian or NSW teams more than once at RAC Arena.

While that will require them to spend time in the nation’s most COVID-impacted states, Georgiu said the entire squad would be vaccinated.

“We didn’t mandate it so we are pleased that our players put themselves into a position where they can play even if laws come into place at some point during the season,” Georgiu said.

The NBL has planned for all teams to have four practice matches but an NBL Cup has not been announced.

NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said the fixture could change if required, but everyone was looking forward to a more normal season.

“We are confident that as the country opens back up, our schedule will open up with it and we will get back to running the competition like we used to,” he said.

Arizona women’s basketball releases full schedule for 2021-22 season


Arizona women’s basketball put its finishing touches on its pre-conference schedule last week. Now, the Pac-12 has done the same with the conference schedule. The Wildcats released their full 2021-22 slate on Tuesday including dates and times for all Pac-12 games.

Including both pre-conference and conference match-ups, Arizona will play 13 games against nine different opponents who went to the 2021 NCAA Tournament. Five of those games will be held in McKale Center. Overall, the Wildcats will play 18 home games including two exhibitions.

Conference play will tip off over New Year’s Day weekend. The Wildcats travel to USC on Friday, Dec. 31. Two days later, they will go to Westwood to face UCLA.

The Wildcats will miss out on a home game against Stanford this season. Last year’s national champions and national runners-up are scheduled to play just once during the regular season. That game will be played in Maples Pavilion.

Other changes to the schedule include the shifting of the Arizona-ASU match-ups. For the past few years, those games have been played during different weeks. This season, they will be played on the same weekend, a practice that last happened in the 2017-18 season. The Wildcats will travel to Tempe on Friday, Feb. 11. The Sun Devils make the return trip to Tucson on Sunday, Feb. 13.

The visit from ASU is in the middle of a favorable stretch for Arizona to wrap up the season. The Wildcats play eight games in the month of February without having to leave the state of Arizona. Their game in Tempe on Feb. 11 is their only trip away from McKale Center. The regular season ends with five straight home games.
