Hochman: 'How many dreams now can’t be realized?' College hoops faces coronavirus reality

We are currently in the third month of the year, the 31 allocated days between February and April. But this isn’t March.

It’s not March if there aren’t brackets and buzzer-beaters and a 12 beating a 5-seed and that CBS intro music and Kansas underachieving and your sudden irrational fandom for a college you can’t even locate and some new hero entering our sports orbit and, of course, “One Shining Moment.”

The ball won’t be tipped. Conference basketball tournaments and the NCAA Tournament itself have been canceled. Right away, the decision is right. These games would’ve otherwise perpetuated the spread of coronavirus.
