Before the Big 12 made the cancellation, the Big Ten and SEC had also shut down their conference tournaments.
Last night the NBA suspended the season when it was announced Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz has coronavirus. It has since been announced that his teammate Donovan Mitchell also has the virus.
Rudy Gobert thought it would be funny to touch everything during this press conference.
Karma didn't think it was funny.
Rudy has now tested positive for coronavirus and the NBA has suspended the season.
