Coronavirus causes sports to stall.

Hartnett - Oxford Eagle

The Southeastern Conference has cancelled all regular season and postseason events until March 30th, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

As first reported by Kendall Rogers, Ole Miss baseball’s home series against Louisiana State was canceled on Thursday morning, and the announcement from the SEC came shortly thereafter.

Initial speculation came just after 11:00 a.m. CST, as LSU was boarding for travel to Oxford.

Minutes later, Ole Miss canceled a scheduled media session, and rumors began to swirl about the continuation of league play.

The Ivy League became the first conference to cancel all spring sports on Wednesday, and many conferences have since followed suit in regard to conference tournaments. However, the SEC becomes the first Power Five conference to suspend all sporting events.
