Cancel culture strikes again.
Err… I mean the Coronavirus strikes again.
The CBI tournament just got the axe, which is making me rather nervous about March Madness:

The CBI is the de facto #3 postseason college basketball tournament, behind the NCAA and NIT. Last year’s final four included DePaul, South Florida, Loyola Marymount, and Coastal Carolina, so it’s not the premier competition in the world, but it’s another chance for college ball players to win a trophy and get some meaningful time on the court.
The big bummer is that some seniors have probably played their very last college basketball game, as of March 11th, 2020. COVID-19 is cutting their careers short, which is a shame.
