The day the Big Sky Conference tournament ground to a halt
By JORDAN HANSEN Missoulian
MISSOULA, Mont (Missoulian) — Big Sky Conference commissioner Tom Wistrcill is describing the fast-moving developments that led to the abrupt end of the basketball tournament as going from "the highest of highs to a lot of lows."
Wistrcill spoke to reporters on Monday, four days after the coronavirus outbreak halted the Big Sky Conference tournament and sporting events nationwide.
The commissioner says he initially believed the tournament could go on, but things started to change with the NCAA deciding to ban spectators at the national basketball tournament.
He calls the cancellations one of the most stunning turn of events in his 27-year career in college athletics.
