NCAA says no fans at men's national tournament; Big Ten Tournament follows suit starting Thursday

Were you planning on attending the NCAA men's basketball Midwest regional at Lucas Oil Stadium in a few weeks? Now you won't be able to.


The NCAA released a statement Wednesday afternoon, saying the upcoming men's and women's basketball tournament games will be closed to the public, due to coronavirus concerns. Only "essential staff and limited family attendance" will be allowed. 


"March Madness" begins next Tuesday. The Midwest regional at Lucas Oil Stadium is scheduled for Thursday, March 26 and Saturday, March 28.


The Big Ten Tournament has fans at BLF Wednesday for two opening round games.  However, like others following suit, the conference announced that fans will not be at the tournament starting on Thursday.
