ST. LOUIS – After a long wait, the Eureka men's and women's basketball teams' schedules for spring 2021 are now official.
The St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SLIAC) announced its basketball schedule for the upcoming season on Thursday.
This year's basketball season was pushed back to spring 2021 for health and safety reasons due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Conference member schools will play a 10-game conference schedule that begins in February and concludes with the nine-team SLIAC Tournament in April.
Every game day will be a doubleheader, featuring a women's game and a men's game.
The Red Devils' season will begin on Feb, 23 with a road doubleheader at Principia. Their first home games will take place on March 3 against Blackburn.
While the schedules have been approved, spring sport competition will still be contingent upon the status of COVID-19 spread and access to appropriate testing, as well as guidance from local and national public health officials.
