FDU basketball season is about to go into full swing, with a new format for games, as the coronavirus continues to infect more people in New Jersey.

The FDU men’s basketball team wrapped up its final non-conference game with a 79-67 loss to Providence. 

The Knights will now begin their conference play with a new round-robin schedule where they will play an NEC team two days in a row and then follow that same schedule with other NEC teams to finish off the season.

The next game for men’s basketball is against Central Connecticut State at 7 p.m. followed on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

The FDU women’s basketball team has one non-conference game left, against Fordham, before conference play starts with the same round-robin format as men’s basketball.

The game against Fordham is also tomorrow night at 7 p.m.

Stay tuned for live blogs for both teams throughout the season.

Yesterday, New Jersey reported over 6,000 new cases and 543 of those cases were from Bergen County, according to the google statistics count.

There are a total of 370,000 COVID-19 cases in New Jersey with 38,145  in Bergen County as of yesterday.

Also, former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday following multiple visits across the country during the week.
