Big Ten Changes Plan to Cancel Spring Sports, Will Suspend Them Instead

The Big Ten has changed its plan to cancel spring sports due to the coronavirus pandemic and will suspend organized team activities instead.

The conference announced Friday morning that the suspension will last until April 6 and then be re-evaluated at that time.

"The Big Ten has previously announced that in addition to canceling the Men's Basketball Tournament it will be canceling all conference and non-conference competitions through the end of the academic year, including spring sports that compete beyond the academic year, and participation in all NCAA tournaments and competitions," the Big Ten said in a statement.
