Someone knows something about how bad this epidemic is going to get.

Hysterical overreaction, fed by the media

No MOST the media is a bunch of lying leftist shit bags and spew idiocy for idiots to soak up. Like Trump is at fault for the virus spreading or he isn't worried enough and so on .

That has to be creepy for the players not hearing the roar of the crowds.

Disheartening is more like it. For most of these players this would normally be the highlight of their lives as athletes up til now.  Playing in empty arenas will change the whole experience.

I read that family members of the players, if cleared, will be allowed to attend.

What happens when a player gets it? His team forfeits?

I guess it would be impossible to re-locate away form the massive arenas to smaller locations, like a H.S. gym, where the atmosphere would be similar.

Will they utilize a 10 second tape delay? Will the TV commentator's outbursts disrupt the players on the court? Will a coaches outburst towards referees result in more technicals? 

This should be really interesting. The memories !

Right on cue. NCAA is considering changing venues for the regionals and finals.
