The Patriot League recently announced a special pandemic-limited scheduling scheme (beginning Jan 2) based mostly on regional proximity where each member team will play four other teams four times rather than the usual home and away scheme against every member of the league. Army will be playing Colgate, Holy Cross, Boston U., and Navy. There is also a stipulation that no teams would play any non-league games, though Army and Navy were exempted from this.

Unless positive COVID cases prevent it, Navy schedule shows them playing six non-league games in late Nov through Dec.

The Army sports web site shows the team only playing games in accordance with the Patriot League schedule with no non-conference games. HOWEVER, ESPN shows Army participating in a college basketball pandemic bubble arrangement of about 40 or so teams that the Connecticut casino resort Mohegan Sun has organized and is hosting. ESPN shows Army playing Univ of San Francisco on Fri Nov 27 at a time TBD.

Other than that single game, there does not appear to be any other non-league games in the offing for the Army cagers.
