A fast break we'll figure out on the fly

In case you missed it, Rick Pitino has returned to college basketball. In exile since a forced exit from Louisville in October 2017, Pitino is coaching the Iona Gaels, and he’s eager to become a leading spokesman for promoting what’s good for the game.

College basketball, stained by federal and NCAA investigations of cheating coaches in recent years, has a much bigger problem in 2020-21. It’s not breaking news that the coronavirus pandemic, which wiped out March Madness, is threatening to ruin another season. A season that normally would have tipped off in early November has been pushed back to Nov. 25, and that’s when a different sort of madness will begin.
