RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Atlantic 10 Tournament has been canceled after both VCU and University of Massachusett’s teams left the floor.
Prior to canceling the game, the NCAA announced that the tournament will be played in mostly empty arenas, banning fans from the Barclays Center for the remainder of its conference tournament.
Many conferences such as the SEC, Big 10, and the ACC canceled the remainder of their tournaments as well.
The Big East is the only tournament that has not canceled.
The league’s tournament began with two games on Wednesday that were played in front of fans.
While these changes are massive at both the conference and national levels, even more, drastic adjustments could come in the days ahead. All of these decisions were made prior to the NBA’s decision to suspend its season, which happened Wednesday night after the Utah Jazz’s Rudy Gobert tested positive for Coronavirus.
A second Utah Jazz teammate, Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the coronavirus COVID-19.
VCU was scheduled to face UMass on Thursday at noon, while Richmond was slated to take on either Davidson or La Salle on Friday at 6:00.
