Good morning and welcome to The Huddle for today, November 3, 2020. It’s Tuesday.
Your need to read time today is 90-seconds, as usual.

“The Big East will honor the memory of late Georgetown Hoyas men’s basketball head coach John Thompson Jr. each season with the creation of the John Thompson Jr. Award to recognize the individual, team or athletic department who made significant efforts to fight prejudice, discrimination and advance positive social change.”
If you’re an LGBTQ person in sports looking to connect with others in the community, head over to GO! SPACE to meet and interact with other LGBTQ athletes, or to Equality Coaching Alliance to find other coaches, administrators and other non-athletes in sports.
