With the NCAA Tournament scheduled to get underway next weekend, but every conference with games left has decided to cancel those games.

Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports reports that a decision on whether to simply play games without fans or at all is expected tomorrow:

“Top NCAA officials are meeting most of the day Thursday to decide the future of the 2020 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament amid growing concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, a high-level NCAA source told CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd. Though a decision could be shared with the public at any point, the current expectation is that an official announcement won’t be made until Friday.”

As a preemptive measure, Duke and Kansas have already suspended all athletic activity.
