March 16th 2020

March 12, 2020 is a day college hoops fans will never forget.

In fact, fans of all sports were shocked by various cancellations.

There was no other choice by the NCAA but to cancel Mach Madness.

My heart goes out to all the players, coaches and fans, etc. that dreamed of being part of this magical tournament. However, this is the time where sports had to take the back seat to the concerns of public health. Salute seniors like Markus Howard of Marquette, Myles Powell of Seton Hall, Payton Pritchard of Oregon and Cassius Winston of Michigan State, who played their last game.

Luka Garza of Iowa was a junior and Obi Toppin of Dayton was a sophomore. They have remaining eligibility, but odds are they will enter the NBA Draft.

I have often said March Madness is one of the greatest sporting events. This year it was sent to the sidelines.

There was other news as Rick Pitino is back on the sidelines. He accepted the Iona job and I believe he will have them as a mid-major power within three years.
