The Nebraska Cornhuskers loss to the Indiana Hoosiers will end the Big Ten Tournament for this season. The conference announced they will be cancelling all remaining games of the tournament. It is unclear at this time what will be happening with the NCAA tournament next week. I guess for lack of much else to say, if the tournament still happens then one upside is the Hoosiers likely clinched their bid with a win last night before the tournament was called off.

The Big Ten Conference announced today that it will be canceling the remainder of the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, effective immediately. The Big Ten Conference will use this time to work with the appropriate medical experts and institutional leadership to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. The main priority of the Big Ten Conference continues to be the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans and media as we continue to monitor all developing and relevant information on the COVID-19 virus.
