Should college basketball become a one-semester sport? IMG’s president is an advocate

According to Andy Staples, IMG president Ben Sutton is in favor of college basketball moving to a one-semester schedule. His reasoning is that the sport is currently cannibalized by college football.

The college basketball season generally tips off around the beginning of November, meaning it competes with the final month and a half (approximately) of football’s regular season. Staples also said that the NCAA would not pare down basketball schedules, which means the NCAA Tournament would be pushed back.

Sutton’s line of thought is one more indication of college football’s power. Football is the premier revenue sport in collegiate athletics, and now seemingly dictates every move universities make.
