The MHSAA announced Thursday afternoon that all winter tournaments are suspended, effective immediately and indefinitely, due to concerns related to COVID-19.
The MHSAA announcement came just hours after the Big Ten Conference announced late Thursday morning that the Big Ten Basketball Tournament has been cancelled.
Rutgers and Michigan were set to play at noon in the second round and went through pre-game warmups, but were called off the court and the announcement was made shortly after.
"The Big Ten Conference announced today that it will be canceling the remainder of the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, effective immediately," the conference said in a statement.
"The Big Ten Conference will use this time to work with the appropriate medical experts and institutional leadership to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The main priority of the Big Ten Conference continues to be the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans and media as we continue to monitor all developing and relevant information on the COVID-19 virus."
