The NCAA has announced an abrupt end to the Men’s and Women’s basketball season, one that had less than a month to go before champions were to be crowned.

Along with men’s and women’s basketball, there are the remaining 2020 Division I winter and spring championships that were canceled by the NCAA on Thursday:

Thursday’s decision by the NCAA follows the cancellation of 15 men’s basketball conference tournaments earlier in the day and announcements by the ACC, Big Ten and other leagues suspending all athletic-related activity until further notice.

Among the championships that were also canceled are hockey, softball, baseball, and lacrosse.

The NCAA had previously announced that there would be zero fan attendance for the remainder of the tournament, but that changed after fear over the Pandemic and latest Coronavirus news.

Congrats to both the FAU men and Women for a great season.
