The Pac-12 announced earlier on Thursday that the conference would follow suit behind the other Power Five Conferences and cancel its Men’s Conference Basketball tournament due to the concerns over COVID-19.

The conference also issued a statement along with the cancelation that all other sports will be put on hold as well until further notice. That means sports such as baseball and softball, which were supposed to start Pac-12 play this weekend will be suspended until a decision has been changed.

“This decision has been made in consultation with our member universities in an effort to limit the spread of the virus and in the interest of the health and safety of our student-athletes, campus personnel, working and event personnel, and all those who attend Pac-12 events,” a Pac-12 release said.
