Coronavirus Claims 2020 NAIA Basketball National Championships
March 12, 2020 1:16pm
After initially deciding last night to limit attendance, today the NAIA announced the remainder of the Division II Women's and Men's Basketball Championships in Sioux City and Sioux Falls respectively, have been cancelled. The action by the NAIA falls in line with major NCAA conferences including the Big Ten and Big 12 in calling off the duration of their post-season tournaments due to the coronavirus. The Big East was the last power conference to call off their tournament today. The decision came with St. John's leading Creighton 38-35 at halftime. They did not play the second half.
In both Sioux City and Sioux Falls, two first round games were completed today before the cancellation. In announcing the decision to cancel all of their remaining winter championship events, a release from the NAIA stated:
“The health and safety of our student-athletes, as well as all involved in our championship events, is the NAIA’s highest priority. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments and NAIA leadership will work closely with our member institutions to determine the best path forward for future NAIA events, including all spring 2020 championships.”
While the Northwestern Men's basketball team was able to play their first round game Wednesday night (a 67-49 lost to #1 ranked College of Idaho), the Dordt Women's basketball team saw their season come to an abrupt end before competing in Sioux City. The Defenders had been schedule to play Reinhardt University of Georgia at 1:45 this afternoon.
