The Big East canceled its men’s basketball tournament today in New York due to the spread of coronavirus. The decision was announced at halftime of Creighton’s game against St. John’s, with the Bluejays trailing 38-35.

After consulting with New York City officials, the conference’s Presidents and Athletic Directors reportedly decided to cancel the tourney in the middle of the first half, but felt it would be less disruptive to let the two clubs play until the break.
