NCAA in talks to hold entire men's basketball tournament in Indianapolis

 

Quote

Due to challenges associated with the coronavirus pandemic, the entire 2021 NCAA men's basketball tournament will be played in one location, the NCAA announced Monday.

 

The NCAA said it is in talks with Indianapolis and the surrounding metro area to be that location.

 

The decision comes after NCAA officials met to consider a variety of contingency plans. The move means that 13 sites across the country will no longer host a preliminary round of the NCAA tournament.

 

Probably optimistic to assume a tourney is going to happen this year.

Wow, UVA upset by a school I’ve never even heard of. 

 

USF was good 70 years ago. University of San Francisco is where Bill Russell played. He won two championships there. Other than that I know little else about their program.

WVU plays #1 Gonzaga tonight.  The game was only scheduled like a week ago.  Gonzaga was originally scheduled to play Tennessee, but they had to drop out due to Covid.  The story goes that Huggins heard about it on TV, called ESPN, said put us in that game, and ESPN had it done within 30 minutes because Huggs is a boss.
