After the cancellation of the NCAA Basketball Tournaments and all winter and spring championships, athletes, particularly seniors, were left with their seasons and careers cut short. Due to this unprecedented nature of the coronavirus, many clamored for athletes to retain their year of eligibility due to the lost post-seasons and full spring seasons.

According to basketball analyst Jeff Goodman, the NCAA is on their way to that possibility. In a time of unbelievable events, the NCAA is looking for a way to accommodate the spring sports.

Winter sports, which were cut short, may also be on the docket.


Great move by the NCAA (for once), especially for sports like baseball and golf and spring tennis. It will be interesting to see how they handle winter sports as well as scholarships allowed.
