March Madness CANCELED By NCAA

 

For the first time in its history the NCAA has decided to cancel it’s annual ‘March Madness’ tournament due to fear surrounding the coronavirus. 

As The Hill reports:

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) on Thursday canceled the annual men’s and women’s Division I basketball tournaments known as March Madness amid the global coronavirus outbreak. 

Basketball — as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships — will be canceled, the association announced. The day before, the NCAA has said it would be restricting tournament attendees to only team family members, essential staff and media.

“This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events to dot 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,” the association said. 

 

The NBA, NHL, and MLS have also all decided to suspend their scheduled seasons.
