With everything going on in the world (namely the global pandemic), a lot of events are getting canceled. Duh.
One of those events that could get put on the chopping block is the Orlando Invitational over Thanksgiving week. However...could MSU still be destined for Orlando anyway for different events?
Sources: While Orlando has emerged as a bubble location for many early season tournaments in college basketball, four signature events --- Champions Classic, Jimmy V Classic, ACC/Big Ten Challenge, and SEC/Big 12 Challenge --- have emerged as primary priorities above others.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) September 8, 2020
If that holds true, MSU could be taking on Duke in the Champions Classic and (insert team here) in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge as well.
Now, of course, that’s far from official. We all know that absolutely nothing is official in 2020. However, the shred of excitement I take from this is that an idea of a non-conference season hasn’t been taken off the table yet.
I, personally, have just figured we are destined for an only-conference season. But rumors like this are, at the very least, a little exciting.
