Dan Gavitt, NCAA senior vice president in charge of basketball told the NCAA.com that The NCAA men’s and women’s tournaments are scheduled to go on as planned in March and early April at the selected sites.
“At this point, we are continuing the planning for the NCAA basketball championships with the normal format, schedule and multiple host sites,’’ said Gavitt. The men’s Final Four is scheduled to be held in New Orleans while the women’s Final Four is slated for Minneapolis.
“We are certainly closely monitoring the unfortunate and sudden COVID spike and will consider any adjustments as necessary for the health, safety and success of the championships. However, despite the current challenges we’re experiencing in college basketball, the solutions to these problems during this phase of the pandemic are likely quite different than the dramatic championship format changes we had to adopt last year.”
David Worlock, the NCAA’s director of media coordination and statistics, added “Games that do not get played are declared no contests while the committee is aware of these games, they are not part of a team’s resume and therefore will not be part of the committee’s evaluation.”
