"Several Yale basketball players taking leave of absence this semester — and more could follow"

https://www.ctinsider.com/colleges/nhregister/a rti...

I don't know the specific players, since I don't have a subscription to the NHR. However, the photos at the top mention that Atkinson and Swain are on campus this fall.

Atkinson, a senior, is enrolled and plans to complete his senior year.

Alausa, who is pre-med, thinks a season this year is unlikely.
“Realistically, looking at the numbers and things like that, I don’t really see it,” he said. “But obviously it can happen. That’d be exciting and good for the people on campus. Personally, I’m not sure how it’s going to happen.”

Sure.
If power conferences play but we don’t the portal could be full of Ivy players.

I would think a January league only season is still in play.

Hope so!!
Brown has a good shot at the Ivy Tournament. Felt really positive about Dartmouth until the injury to Knight

Wonder what guys like Djuricic and Atkinson would do then?

Paul Atkinson has announced that he will be graduating in the spring and entering the transfer portal with one year of eligibility left. Sadly looks like we may have seen the last of him in a Yale uniform, and I'm sure there'll be some other seniors in the league announcing similar moves as the Ivy trends towards not playing this season

- Yale forward Paul Atkinson, who shared Ivy League Player of the Year honors last season, announced Monday he planned to graduate and transfer in the spring.

Atkinson is already in the transfer portal.

Atkinson has played three seasons at Yale but will have a season of eligibility remaining in the spring regardless of whether he plays this season due to the NCAA granting winter student-athletes another year of eligibility. -
