(Almost) no fans will be able to attend MAC Tournament because of coronavirus fears

The Mid-American Conference Tournament will be played in a mostly empty Rocket Mortgage Arena Fieldhouse.

The MAC announced late Tuesday afternoon that only player family members, media and school officials will be allowed in the fieldhouse for the tournament, which starts Wednesday.

The move, the conference said, came after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine asked that attendance be limited at all athletic centers in order to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Here’s the MAC statement:

MAC cancel

All games will be broadcast or streamed on ESPN+, the CBS Sports Channel (men’s semifinals and women’s finals) and ESPN2 (men’s finals).

Kent State games will be broadcast on WHLO and Golden Flashes iHeart Radio.

The Kent State women’s team is scheduled to play Buffalo at about 8 p.m. Wednesday. It’s the last of four quarterfinal games that day.

The KSU men play Ball State at about 8 Thursday, again the last of four games. Semifinals are Friday for men and women. Finals are Saturday.
