There it is.

The COVID-19 virus that’s swept the globe has hit March Madness in a major way, shutting out fans of the entirety of the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball championships.

NCAA president Mark Emmert made the decision just minutes after their advisory board recommended no games be played in front of the public.

The Big Ten Tournament will also no longer allow fans into the games for the remainder of the conference event.

We’ll see if this is just the beginning of news from the NCAA. Stay tuned.
