“From the first day of the pandemic and restrictions on in-person instruction, we have been supporting a high-quality learning experience for our students,” Fike said. “We know this from student feedback and the fact that we are enjoying strong enrollment from both returning and new students.”

This season has been filled with wild results — starting as early as the Friday after Thanksgiving, when San Francisco upset Virginia on a neutral court in Connecticut.
