The coronavirus impact: How MT Athletics has been affected

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — With the world being tossed upside down, inside out and every which way, it's hard to believe Middle Tennessee was preparing for some exciting times on the field, hardwood, golf course and track just a week and a half ago.

On Wednesday evening, March 11, at 9:52 p.m., Conference USA announced that because of the COVID-19 scare, the remainder of the conference's men's and women's basketball tournaments would be played without fans. Then, following suit with other collegiate conferences and professional leagues, the next day shortly before 1 p.m., C-USA suspended all remaining winter and spring sports competition, effectively ending the basketball tournaments.
