The NBA suspended its season after one of its players tested positive for the coronavirus, then college and pro sports began suspensions and cancellations until there was ultimately a complete shut down in American sports.
The NCAA tournament, which is only three weeks long, brought in $933 million last year in revenue from ticket sales, TV revenue and corporate sponsorships. This year's tournament could be suspended, or perhaps canceled, because of the spread of coronavirus.
The MAC tournament is set to be played before only family members, credentialed media and other team and school officials. Rocket Mortgage Arena is also scheduled to host first- and second-round games in the NCAA tournament next week.
