Atlantic 10 Men's Basketball Championship CancelledMar 12, 2020
BROOKLYN, N.Y. – The 2020 Atlantic 10 Conference Championship at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. has been cancelled, as announced today by Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade.
“The A-10 has made a decision to discontinue play as a result of the Covid-19 virus. Given the rapid spread of the virus, this decision was supported by the Athletic Directors and Presidents’ Council. These are uncertain times for sure, and we feel tremendous empathy for the student-athletes who will not have the opportunity to finish competing. However, the welfare of the student-athletes and the public is of utmost importance.”
Rhode Island Athletic Director Thorr Bjorn, Chair of the Atlantic 10 Athletic Directors:
“The Athletic Directors support this decision. Our top priority will always be the health and safety of our student-athletes and fans as a group. We’re all in agreement that this was the best decision during a very difficult time. I want to thank Commissioner McGlade, the Presidents’ Council and the Athletic Directors for their leadership during this challenging process.
