The NCAA announced on Thursday afternoon the cancellation of the Division I Men’s and Women’s 2020 basketball Championships.
The statement also included that all remaining winter and spring championships have been cancelled as well, including the men’s and women’s College World Series.
“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. 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.”
