An official update on the upcoming basketball season has been released by Morehead State University Athletics. It could change.

Although the exact number of fans has not been resolved, the athletic department will allow fans to attend the games. Families will be allowed to sit together during games and only season tickets will be sold.

“The exact number of fans per game has not been finalized and will be based on evolving health and safety protocols set forth by local, regional and OVC guidelines,” said Matt Shabert, media relations director for athletics. “At this time, no fans will be allowed on the floor at any time during a game.”

“Seating capacity at Johnson Arena will be significantly limited,” he added. “Only season tickets will be sold at this time.” He said no fans will be allowed on the floor.

Schabert also said non-conference games will be likely be streamed by the host team and home games will continue on ESPN+.

All basketball schedules are subject to change, but the women’s basketball team is expected to play Dayton at home Wednesday, November 25 at 12 p.m.

Basketball is the only sport that has been confirmed. Volleyball, soccer, baseball and softball are not finalized.

The Morehead State Men’s Basketball team is set to play their first game of the season against Kentucky, Richmond and Detroit Mercy during the Bluegrass Showcase in Lexington, Kentucky on November 25-29.
