With more reported cases of COVID-19, the OHSAA has moved to suspend all tournaments

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- With reported cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) hitting the NBA last night and a slew of other cancellations of major college tournaments, the OHSAA announced that all winter sports tournaments are postponed indefinitely, commissioner Jerry Snodgrass said this afternoon. This includes the boys regional and girls state basketball tournaments, wrestling and ice hockey state tournaments.

"As much as we want this opportunity for our kids, and our schools and communities, we have to look at the safety aspect that these mass gatherings create," Snodgrass said.

Outright cancelling the tournament is not something that has been discussed at this moment.

“I don’t want to say that yet. We do not want to go that far yet. But that is on the table," Snodgrass expressed.

270 Hoops will have more on this story as it progresses.
