Due in part to an abundance of COVID-19 cancelations and postponements across the region, the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) approved a proposal to extend the regular basketball season by one week to allow extra time to make up missed games due to COVID protocol, Yuba College Athletic Director Erick Burns said. 

As a result of a longer regular season, Burns said the postseason will be condensed by a week.

“With this approval, the (Bay Valley Conference) has collectively decided to reschedule (multiple) basketball games (men and women),” Burns said in a statement Wednesday.  

Yuba’s first rescheduled game is moved from Jan. 6 to Feb. 22 for a men’s and women’s doubleheader beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Yuba College in Linda.

On Jan. 11, Yuba’s road doubleheader at Solano College is moved to Feb. 25 beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Burns said assuming there are no more COVID issues, the 49ers are scheduled to resume their season Jan. 13 at home against Contra Costa beginning at 5:30 p.m. with the women’s game.
