(KXII) - The N.J.C.A.A. made the call to push all Fall sports into the Spring semester on Monday, which means basketball won’t begin until January. That decision effects schools like Grayson College, Murray State College, Paris Junior College, and NCTC.

Some of those schools also play soccer and volleyball, all of that will be played in the Spring now also. For the coaches, and the athletic directors, they at least know what the plan is.

“It is really nice to know where we’re headed,” said Murray State College athletic director Aaron Mullens. “This is where we were, where we are, and where we’re going. It’s nice to know that there’s a decision rendered, so we can make our decisions as we deem fit for our institutions as well.”

“I think everybody breathed a sigh of relief, that we’re all in this together, we’re all moving forward at the same pace, and we have a set of guidelines to work off of,” said Grayson College athletic director Mike McBrayer. “Instead of state by state or region by region.”

Junior colleges that have swimming, tennis, or cross country programs are allowed to carry on with those sports as planned this Fall.
