The Ivy League has canceled its conference basketball tournament due to concerns of the Coronavirus.
Yale, the regular-season champion of the Ivy League, will represent the conference in the NCAA Tournament.
And Penn’s season is over with a 16-11 record, 8-6 in the Ivy.
This is the first college basketball event canceled due to Coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19, as it continues to spread to America.
Yale gets the automatic for the NCAA Tournament after posting an 11-3 record in conference play and 23-7 record overall. The Ivy League has just four teams in their conference tournament, which would’ve included Harvard, Princeton and Penn along with Yale and played next weekend at Harvard.
There is no word on if this could change plans for other conference tournaments or the NCAA Tournament at this time.
