The Big East is the only one that has tipped off today, but even they cancelled at halftime.

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Tournament-Nebraska vs Indiana Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

This report has been updated multiple times on Thursday, March 12.

As the sports world continues to react and navigate around COVID-19, reports are streaming out that multiple conference basketball championships are being cancelled.

Just about all of the conference tournaments have been cancelled as of Thursday morning, including the ACC, which joined the SEC, Pac 12, Big Ten, and Big 12.

Still no word on whether the NCAA Tournament will go on without spectators or if it will continue as planned.

Some have clamored that this is an overreaction. Others are entirely supportive of the move. What’s your take?
