The NCAA has announced that no fans will be allowed at the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
NCAA President Mark Emmert released a statement on limiting attendance at NCAA events, saying in part, “Based on advice and my discussions with the NCAA Board of Governors, I have made the decision to conduct our upcoming championship events, including the Division I men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, with only essential staff and limited family attendance. While I understand how disappointing this is for all fans of our sports, my decision is based on the current understanding of public health.”
