    Wow. Just wow.

    I hope this doesn’t happen anywhere else.

    Wow sad to these sports that are affected and especially to all the seniors who will not be able to participate in their sport and/or have their families watch them.
    Praying that our MVB season continues as planned and the fans don’t get banned from seeing this awesome team in live action.

    It’s not just sports. Princeton will close the school effective this weekend. All students must leave campus this Saturday and the school will announce when the school will reopen. They are projecting around July. It depends on containment of the Covid-19.

    4. thanks. am catching up as well.
    Pepperdine will allow each player and coach, home and visitor, two family members each. After that only players, coaches, game officials, essential game operations and administrative staff, and credentialed media allowed.

    CSUN transitioning to virtual learning.
    In-person classes cancelled through Sunday.
    No word let about spectators in the Matadome.
    Long Beach State following the same guidelines that Pepperdine is using in terms of family members.

    Any word if the Big West/MPSF will beef up their video streaming of all matches? Sounds like a perfect case for such a use of technology that has been lacking in these leagues.

    Is it true USC Beach pulled out of the Stetson Tournament this weekend?
