2021–22 NCAA Division I men's basketball season

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2021–22 NCAA Division I men's basketball season began on November 9, 2021 and concluded on March 13, 2022. The 2022 NCAA Division I men's basketball tournament culminated the season and began on March 15 and concluded on April 4 with the championship game at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Rule changes[edit]

The following rule changes have been recommended by the NCAA Basketball Rules Committee to the Playing Rules Oversight Panel for the 2021–22 season:[1]

  • Flopping can result in a technical foul.
  • Increase to six personal fouls before disqualification, with a maximum of four fouls allowed per half (experimental in NIT for 2022). If a player commits four personal fouls in a single half they will be disqualified for the remainder of the game.
  • Allowance at the league level for coaches to use technology, live statistics and video on the bench.
  • Team timeouts can serve as/replace media timeouts (e.g., team calls timeout at the 18-minute mark in a half, that would be used as the under-16-minute media timeout).
  • Shot clocks will now be able to display tenths of a second, similar to the NBA.

Season headlines[edit]

Two of the most significant developments impacting the 2021–22 season took place before the end of the 2020–21 school year, with one occurring before the start of the 2020–21 basketball season.

  • On October 14, 2020, the NCAA announced that all student-athletes in winter sports during the 2020–21 school year, including men's and women's basketball, would receive an extra year of athletic eligibility.[2]
  • On April 15, 2021, the NCAA Division I Council adopted legislation that extended the so-called "one-time transfer exception" to all D-I sports, with the Division I Board of Directors ratifying this on April 28. This allows student-athletes in baseball, men's and women's basketball, football, and men's ice hockey to transfer one time without having to sit out a year, placing them under the same transfer regulations that previously applied to all other D-I sports.[3][4]

Other news:

  • May 6 – The University of Hartford's governing board voted to begin the process of transitioning the school's athletic program from Division I to NCAA Division III. The plan calls for the following steps:[5][6]
    • January 2022: Formal request for reclassification with the NCAA.
    • 2022–23: No athletic scholarships will be awarded to incoming students.
    • 2023–24: Become a provisional member in a D-III conference to be determined; transition remaining students off athletic scholarships by the end of that school year.
    • 2024–25: Become a full member of the aforementioned D-III conference.
    • 2025–26: Full D-III membership.
  • May 18 – The office of the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky released an indictment of former Louisville assistant Dino Gaudio for attempted extortion. The indictment accused Gaudio, whose contract with Louisville was not renewed after the 2020–21 season, of threatening to report NCAA rules violations in the Louisville program to media unless he received an additional 17 months of salary.[7] Gaudio would plead guilty on June 4[8] and was sentenced to a year of probation and a $10,000 fine on August 27.[9] In fallout from the case, Louisville suspended head coach Chris Mack without pay for the first 6 games of the 2021–22 season. The university concluded that he failed to follow its guidelines and procedures in relation to the incident.[10]
  • July 30 – Oklahoma and Texas formally accepted invitations to join the Southeastern Conference following the 2024–25 season.[11][12][13][14]
  • September 3 – Multiple media outlets reported that the Big 12 was on the verge of inviting four schools—American Athletic Conference members Cincinnati, Houston, and UCF, plus BYU, a West Coast Conference member and an FBS independent in football. All four schools were reportedly preparing membership applications, and their future entrance could be approved as early as the next scheduled meeting of Big 12 presidents on September 10. The entry timeline was uncertain at the time of the report, but would most likely be in 2024,[15][16] and on September 10 the four schools were officially announced as incoming Big 12 members no later than 2024–25.[17]
  • October 21 – Six Conference USA members were announced as incoming members of The American Athletic Conference at a future date – Charlotte, Florida Atlantic, North Texas, Rice, UAB, and UTSA.[18][19][20]
  • October 22 – The Action Network reported that C-USA member Southern Miss had accepted an invitation to join the Sun Belt Conference in 2023, though no formal announcement had then been made. The report added that the Sun Belt was preparing to add two other C-USA members, Marshall and Old Dominion, as well as Colonial Athletic Association member James Madison. At the time, some formal announcements of new members were expected on October 25, but a Marshall announcement was likely to wait until after announcing its new president on October 28. The report also indicated that the Sun Belt would expel its two full non-football members, Little Rock and UT Arlington, after the 2022–23 season.[21]
  • October 25 – The Associated Press preseason All-American team was released. Gonzaga forward Drew Timme was the lone unanimous selection (63 votes). Joining him on the team were Illinois center Kofi Cockburn, UCLA guard Johnny Juzang, Villanova guard Collin Gillespie, and Indiana forward Trayce Jackson-Davis.[22]
  • October 26 – Southern Miss was officially announced as a Sun Belt member, effective no later than July 2023.[23] In other Sun Belt realignment news, it was reported that Old Dominion's arrival would be announced later that week, and that James Madison's board had scheduled an emergency meeting on October 29 (presumably to discuss a Sun Belt invitation).[24]
  • October 27 – Old Dominion was officially announced as a Sun Belt member, also effective no later than July 2023. This marked ODU's return to that conference after an absence of more than 30 years.[25]
  • October 30 – The day after both the Sun Belt Conference and Marshall issued tweets indicating that the Thundering Herd had accepted a Sun Belt invitation,[26] this move was officially announced.[27]
  • November 5 – Conference USA, which had nine of its schools depart to other conferences, announced that ASUN Conference members Jacksonville State and Liberty and Western Athletic Conference members New Mexico State and Sam Houston would join C-USA no later than July 2023.[28]
  • November 6 – James Madison made its move to the Sun Belt official, initially effective no later than July 2023.[29]
  • November 12

  • January 26 – UIC was announced as a new member of the MVC, effective July 1.[39]
  • February 2 – The Sun Belt and James Madison both reported the latter's admission to the conference is on July 1, rather than 2023.[40]
  • February 7 – The University of Southern Indiana, currently a member of the Division II Great Lakes Valley Conference, announced that it would begin a transition to Division I in 2022–23, with a D-I conference affiliation to be announced in the coming days.[41] A committee report issued in January indicated three leagues believed to be the ASUN Conference, Horizon League, and Ohio Valley Conference were possible landing spots.[42]
  • February 9 – Southern Indiana was announced as a new member of the OVC, effective July 1.[43]
  • February 11 – Marshall, Old Dominion, and Southern Miss, which were initially announced as moving from C-USA to the Sun Belt no later than 2023, jointly announced that they intended to leave C-USA in July 2022. All three schools claimed that in December 2021, they had notified C-USA of their intent to leave C-USA after the 2021–22 school year, but that C-USA did not attempt to negotiate a resolution to this issue. C-USA had stated in late January that it expected the three departing schools to remain in the conference through 2022–23.[44]
  • February 20 – Michigan head coach Juwan Howard, upset with a time-out called by Wisconsin head coach Greg Gard as Wisconsin was leading by an insurmountable margin with about 30 seconds remaining, took a swing at a Wisconsin assistant coach in the handshake line after the game ended.[45] It resulted in a brawl in which police officers had to separate players and coaches from both teams.[45] The next day, Howard was suspended for the final five games of Michigan's regular season, with associate head coach Phil Martelli serving as interim head coach during Howard's suspension.[46] Michigan players Moussa Diabaté and Terrance Williams II, as well as Wisconsin player Jahcobi Neath, all also received one-game suspensions for their roles in the brawl.[46]
  • February 22 – The Colonial Athletic Association announced that North Carolina A&T would join from the Big South Conference on July 1. (The football team will join the CAA football league, legally a separate entity, in 2023.)[47]

    • The OVC announced the July 2022 entry of another Division II upgrader, Lindenwood.[49]
  • March 1 – While not directly related to basketball, the Sun Belt Conference's release of its 2022 football schedule notably included all three schools set to move from C-USA (Marshall, Old Dominion, Southern Miss). The SBC release did not mention the ongoing dispute between C-USA and the three schools, or the prospect of those schools being unable to join for the 2022–23 school year.[50]
  • March 5 – Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski coached his final home game at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the culmination of a 42-year career at the school.[51] Over 90 former Duke players attended the game in a 94–81 loss to rival North Carolina.[51] The average sold ticket price to attend the game was over $6,000 – more than the average price for a Super Bowl LVI ticket.[52]
  • March 29
    • Conference USA, Marshall, Old Dominion, and Southern Miss issued a joint statement that all parties had reached a settlement that will allow the three schools to join the Sun Belt Conference in July 2022.[53]

Upsets[edit]

An upset is a victory by an underdog team. In the context of NCAA Division I men's basketball, this generally constitutes an unranked team defeating a team currently ranked in the top 25. This list will highlight those upsets of ranked teams by unranked teams as well as upsets of No. 1 teams. Rankings are from the AP poll. Bold type indicates winning teams in "true road games"—i.e., those played on an opponent's home court (including secondary homes).
