Mohegan Sun to Become College Basketball ‘Bubbleville’

Jason Scott Headshot

As what is sure to be an unprecedented college basketball season approaches, many programs are still scrambling, with more than 50 percent of programs yet to release a schedule for the 2020-21 campaign. 

One venue, however, managed to position itself to host 45 games over an 11-day period to start the college basketball season, becoming something of a hub for the season tip-off.

CBS Sports reports that the Mohegan Sun resort casino, located on protected tribal land in Connecticut, will host some 40 men’s and women’s programs from the period of Nov. 25 to Dec. 5, both for multi-team events and single games. The packed schedule has earned the resort the nickname “Bubbleville,” harkening to the bubble approach the NBA took when it resumed its season at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. Several high-profile programs will be participating in events there, including nationally ranked teams such as Baylor, Villanova and Virginia.
