Alabama and Mississippi were the first two states to begin on Nov. 5, while other states have still yet to begin their 2020-21 campaigns.
Delays and ongoing changes have been a common theme in high school basketball as many notable tournaments have been canceled, including the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions, City of Palms Classic, Chick-fil-A Classic, 'Iolani Classic, John Wall Holiday Invitational and Spalding Hoophall Classic.
The McDonald's All-American Game was also recently called off for the second consecutive year.
Although these cancellations created challenges for many programs who use these events as staples of their national-schedule, adjustments were made to make the best of the situation for many top-tier teams.
As the COVID-19 surge blankets the country and state associations continue to evaluate a safe path to resuming athletics, schedule changes continue to happen.
