March Madness shutdown podcast with Morris:

#1 Cal won that last and final game of the 2019-20 season with a win over the Stanford Cardinal on the night before all NCAA games were suspended putting the Bears and Cardinal and the NCAA in an uncharted position never seen before.

#2 Over the weekend it finally sank in all games in the NCAA for 13 tournaments and the NITs will not be planned.

#3 For the selection process on the brackets the NCAA committee announced it could announce the brackets

#4 Women’s basketball hasn’t started the selection process yet and men’s has only began to put the bracket together but now it’s not possible that the games will be played.

#5 For the students a double whammy not only their classes are all canceled but now but their teams are now on hold until this virus breaks.
