INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA game scheduled Saturday night between VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) and Oregon at Indiana Farmers Coliseum is a no-go due to COVID-19 protocols.

The decision was made by the NCAA Division, Men’s Basketball Committee, and Marion County Public Health Department. As a result, Oregon will advance to the next round of the tournament.

VCU student-athletes will no longer be able to participate in the tournament.
