INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Due to the 2020 women’s season being incomplete, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) released statistical policy adjustments.
As no spring sport made it to postseason competition and in most cases, a third or less of the season was completed, the NCAA has decided the following will be implemented:
●Any single-game accomplishments that would be NCAA records will be recognized in the records books as normal
●Individual statistics for 2020 will be counted toward any athlete’s career statistics (even if that means a student-athlete will have statistics for five – or in some rare cases – six seasons)
●Tournament appearance records (consecutive appearances) for spring championships will not end, but 2020 will not be an extension. Any participation or winning streaks for these championships will pick up where they left off after the 2019 championship
●Coaching records will include any games played during the 2019-20 season and a year will be added to the number of years coached
●Any games played by a coach’s team in a season constitutes a year for the coach’s record
●If a team did not play any games this season, a note will be added to the coaching records stating, “No games were played during the 2020 season before COVID-19 pandemic cancellation
