Will the NCAA Tournament be cancelled?
I posted on this, or possibly the Sun Belt board, earlier today that there was no way the NCAA would allow fans into tournament games since it would be like a petri dish for the coronavirus. Late in the day, the NCAA announced there would be no fans allowed at games. I am now wondering if they will simply cancel the tournament. The NBA is suspending games for now, and the NHL will likely follow tomorrow. The idea of playing without fans apparently sounded ridiculous to them. Who are they playing for anyway? On the other hand, the vast majority of sports fans watch their favorite teams on TV rather than actually go to the games. While it would be really strange to watch the NCAA tournament without the excitement of the fans in the stands, I would still watch. It would actually give millions of folks something to do while waiting out the coronavirus in the next few weeks. I hope they play the tournament, but I am starting to doubt that they will.

We better win the tourney. I don't know if the NCAA tournament will go on as scheduled, but I seriously doubt the NIT will be played. It would be a real shame if we win the tourney and the NCAA tournament is cancelled. Just our luck.

I actually had not thought about it, but since there is no championship involved, you are correct that all the NIT would be doing is losing money to play the games, so they have no motivation at all to do that.

This probably will hurt Kentucky more than any other program, since they have a large fan base that travels very well. Self-discipline is going to be at a premium in these games.
