NCAA Cancels Remaining Winter and Spring Championships

3/12/2020 4:23:00 PM

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Today, NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the Division I men’s and women’s 2020 basketball tournaments, as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.

Thus ends the season for the Cornell men’s and women’s hockey teams with both finishing #1 in the nation. What a sad asterisk for the record books! Our heartfelt thanks to these student-athletes whose performance on and off the ice motivate us all and encourage younger players to emulate their heroes. The Lynah Faithful salute you and share your disappointment. We will see you again around the rinks!
