I have no idea what this college basketball season is going to be like, but I know we won’t have a ton of success at this rate.

If games are being postponed because of coronavirus before the season even opens, then the sport is in huge trouble.

Let’s all hope for the sake of college basketball this doesn’t follow the recent trends in football. That’s literally the last thing we need.
