INDIANAPOLIS — There will be no March Madness this spring, the NCAA has announced.
The NCAA said Thursday that all remaining winter and spring championships, including the Division I Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, have been canceled.
The announcement also impacts other major championships, including the College World Series and the Frozen Four.
The NCAA released the following statement:
“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 the spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.”
