I'd be almost as happy as Lindsey Ehsan if this became a problem for me.

Would UAB's experience playing in front of empty stands give us an edge?

It's going to be so eerie watching the games in empty arenas on TV.

Yep!
They said staff, school officials, and some family of players and coaches would be allowed but nothing after that.
Going to be weird.

I bet Kentucky has at least 10k essential staff and/or immediate family members traveling with men's basketball team.

NBA season has been suspended.

Rudy Gobert for the Jazz tested positive

Trump suspended travel to and from Europe excluding the UK for 30 days. He tried to close all the borders in January but something about “being racist” nixed that measure.

WWE, who’s willing to perform in front of Saudi Arabia royalty and collect that blood money is likely pushing Wrestlemania back to June or July.

I’m convinced. I’ll take this seriously, considering I’m living with elderly.

RE: Breaking: NO FANS will be allowed for NCAA Basketball Tournament!!!
While BB crowds generally number a few thousands, spring also brings spring practice final practice days where many schools take pride in having tens of thousands fans coming to see those final scrimmage games. Then one has to wonder if the "pandemic" does not clear up during the summer, what will be its impact on regular season FB games. Will those high roller fans continue to donate those $millions in premiums if they are barred from those games?

I can't imagine that they will play the tournament at all, the way the momentum for this thing is heading.

March Madness = March Sadness this year.

NCAA is thinking about releasing the bracket for this year's cancelled tournament.


Quote:The 2020 NCAA Tournament is not going to be played over concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but there is still a chance an official bracket for the field of 68 could be released by the NCAA.

NCAA senior vice president of basketball Dan Gavitt told CBS Sports on Friday that the NCAA has not yet completely killed the idea of putting together a 68-team bracket for the purposes of an official recognition of the 2019-20 men's Division I basketball season.

So does that mean the top seed of the tournament would be considered the National Champion?

No reason to release anything.

Kind of hard to put together a bracket of the 68 when 1 of them could have been UAB - but we will never know.
