Augustana will now host eight-straight weeks of Viking basketball


BURNSVILLE, Minn. – The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conferences recently announced that the 2021 men’s and women’s basketball schedules were adjusted due to COVID-19. The men’s and women’s seasons will now be adjusted to a single-gender site schedule.

 In a previously announced change, the league said schools will only compete against one opponent each week of the season and that will continue. The additional changes now mean the Vikings will host eight-straight weeks of basketball action inside the Sanford Pentagon.

 The Viking basketball season gets underway Jan. 2 & 3 with the Augustana women hosting MSU Moorhead inside the Elmen Center on the Augustana campus. Due to a scheduling conflict with the Sanford Pentagon, the Vikings will play on their former home court. The Augustana men will be at MSU Moorhead. All four contests are marked as nonconference contests by the NSIC. 

 The 14-game NSIC season pits Augustana against South Division opponents only begins on Jan. 8 & 9 as the women’s team remains at home on Heritage Court against Minnesota State. The men’s team travels to Minnesota State before making their 2021 home debut on Jan. 15 & 16 against Concordia-St. Paul.

 Augustana is finalizing plans for potential spectator attendance and changes to the fan experience. Any decision, driven by the commitment to the health and safety of all members of the Augustana community, will be communicated in the near future. Stay tuned to and the @GoAugie social media channels for the most up-to-date information regarding schedules and fan policies.
