Bad news for Bison and UND fans as NCAA Tournaments will go on without fans and will only have “essential staff and limited family attendance.”
In a statement, NCAA President Mark Emmert says his decision is based on discussions with the association’s Covid 19 panel and the NCAA Board of Governors.
“This decision is based on the best interest of public health,” Emmert said.
