MEMPHIS, Tenn. — NCAA President Mark Emmert announced Thursday that the NCAA Tournament will be canceled due to coronavirus concerns.
The decision came as the NCAA said all remaining NCAA winter and spring sports championships will be canceled.
Both the men’s and women’s 2020 basketball championships are canceled.
Emmert said the decision came as COVID-19, coronavirus, becomes an evolving public health threat.
This decision changes from Wednesday’s decision to play without fans in attendance.
