    Statement from the NCAA COVID-19 Advisory Panel on NCAA events
    March 11, 2020 4:15pm
    The NCAA COVID-19 Advisory Panel recognizes the fluidity of COVID-19 and its impact on hosting events in a public space. COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in the United States, and behavioral risk mitigation strategies are the best option for slowing the spread of this disease. This is especially important because mildly symptomatic individuals can transmit COVID-19. Given these considerations, coupled with a more unfavorable outcome of COVID-19 in older adults – especially those with underlying chronic medical conditions – we recommend against sporting events open to the public. We do believe sport events can take place with only essential personnel and limited family attendance, and this protects the players, employees, and fans.

    NCAA President Mark Emmert's statement on limiting attendance at NCAA events.

    It's going to be really weird watching them play without fans in the stands or the roar of the crowd when someone hits a game winner or an awesome dunk. Almost like watching a very organized pick up game. Hope they don't cancel like the NBA though.
