According to Jeff Goodman he has confirmed my earlier report that the 2020 NCAA tournament has officially been canceled due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
What are we going to do without March Madness? How do we continue? the show must go on… But without sports?
“Today, NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the Division I men’s and women’s 2020 basketball tournaments, as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships,” a statement from the NCAA said. “This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.”
They marked it as “canceled” instead of suspended which is interesting. You’d think the NCAA would just suspend play and re-evaluate the situation in a couple of weeks.
