Curtain Call. A-10 Tournament CANCELED in Brooklyn.

The 2020 Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Tournament at the Barclays Center has been canceled due to the Corona Virus outbreak in the United States.

Minutes before #8 UMass and #9 VCU started the Atlantic 10 Quarterfinals, there was announcement made on the PA system that the tournament was now canceled and everyone must exit the arena as soon as possible.

No plans of making up the tournament at a later date in the discussion amongst the Atlantic 10 officials. The Atlantic 10 joins the American, ACC, Big 12, Conference USA, SEC, WAC shutting down their conference post-season tournament due to the outbreak.

As for the NCAA Men’s Tournament, the NCAA committee currently is having meetings to determine the fate of March Madness possibly being postponed or canceled entirely.

Mark was known as "Kazie" for his charismatic fandom with the VCU's student organization the Rowdy Rams. While at VCU he gained experience in sports media with WVCW on a sports radio show called Rowdy Radio. Following graduation, Mark continued crafting his social media skills with the Richmond Kickers while also handling VCU coverage. He is a true fan of the Rams and vocally passionate on and off camera. After the final whistle, you can probably find him at local RVA bar or brewery enjoying a drink and conversation.
