March Madness and COVID-19
Many are asking what the NCAA plans to do if teams get struck with COVID-19. Here is what we have so far:
So far, we know that there could be 4 replacements teams, if needed, to progress in the first round. They will be ranked 1-4. The highest ranked team will be the first team to replace any team that the league will deem unfit to compete. Assuming all this happens before March 16. After this, if a team cannot participate, then their opponent will be progressing to the next round through the no-contest rule.
Those kids have a lot of motivation to not get the virus in the next few weeks.
