INDIANAOPLIS, IN – The NCAA announced last week that season-opening practices can be moved up two weeks for men’s basketball beginning this fall.

The Division I Board of Directors announced teams can hold 30 days of practice in the six weeks leading up to their regular-season opener. Previously, practice was roughly only four weeks long.

The first practice was also not allowed to take place before 5:00 p.m. under the old guidelines, but that stipulation has now been dropped.
