NCAA Cancels Remaining Winter And Spring Championships

NCAA Cancels Remaining Winter And Spring Championships

The NCAA released the following statement on Thursday afternoon: Today, NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the Division I men's and women's 2020 basketball tournaments, as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.

This includes the NCAA women's hockey quarterfinal game scheduled for Saturday against Endicott. It also effects Middlebury athletes who are competing in, or were planning to compete in NCAA Skiing, Track & Field and Swimming Championships.
