Due to the continued national spread of COVID-19, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) announced today all upcoming championships will be closed to the general public.  This includes the upcoming Division II Men’s Basketball South Central Region Championship to be held at West Texas A&M University.

Today, we will move forward and conduct championships consistent with the current information and will continue to monitor and make adjustments as needed,” said Mark Emmert, NCAA President.

The South Central Championship will be played as scheduled March 14 – 17. All games will be broadcast free and live (video and audio options) via West Texas A&M will open its 2020 tournament against Colorado Mesa at 6 pm on Saturday.
