Just received an email. Not a good sign.
Best case scenario they are able to have 50% fans. In that case they'd need to somehow only allow about 60% of the 12,000 season ticket holders to attend, and then reseat them throughout the arena (I'm sure someone paying parquet prices will be thrilled to be stuck in the upper balcony).I'm sure they are just so sure they are going to have a season and that demand will be so high they need to increase their pricing structure....?
Even Nebraska High School was able to conduct the final two rounds of the state tournament without fans...first round was with family members only. I would think that how the NBA does their thing will serve as some sort of learning tool for the colleges.Best case scenario they are able to have 50% fans.

But that's extremely best case scenario. Being indoors is even more of a spread risk than outdoors and even at 50% capacity would be a very high risk thing for community spread. It's been far enough out that it hasn't been on many peoples radars, but basketball has seemed much less likely than football and football is on the ropes.
The good news for basketball is with the smaller teams it might be easier to play the games, even if fans aren't in attendance.
For those that didn't get it:
The month of July is usually the time of year when you receive information regarding the renewal of season tickets for men’s & women’s basketball and/or wrestling.
We thought it was important to let you know that this year’s season ticket renewals for each of these sports will be pushed back to a date to be determined later this summer or fall. Once ticket procedures have been finalized, you will receive another email with detailed information on the season ticket renewal process for these winter sports.
If you have any questions you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call our office at (888) 478-2925 during our current business hours of 9am-1pm, Monday-Thursday. Please note that our office is not open to the public at this time.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

I think both will be cancelled. Hate to see it happen, but I think it would be the correct move. I just do not see how football can be played. If they do play, many games will be determined by who can play for each team. Better put a large asterisk by the whole season.I was hopeful for basketball, this scares me about football now.
