Coronavirus: NCAA cancels all championships

Updated: Jun 21



NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors on March 12 canceled all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. He said, "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."


Among the events that will not be played is the NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Central Region Championships, which the Lady Bulldogs were set to compete in beginning on Friday evening in Warrensburg, Missouri.
