I'm hoping for post season play for selfish reasons but would completely understand if the players decided against it.

Please share what your selfish reasons are?
As a long time season ticket holder, I can safely say I enjoy what this team does before the ball goes through the hoop. They make extra passes, move without the ball and work for the highest percentage shot. It would be fun to see some more basketball the way it is supposed to be played.

I agree. Would be nice to see them play a couple more games.

So if I understand this correct you enjoy watching what happens before they score more then when they score. Do you enjoy it even when they lose? No judgement just wondering.

There ain’t gonna be the Delaware H.S. Championships there either. Sounds like UD is going into lockdown . There has not been a reported case in the state yet.

Hofstra wins the CAA auto-bid and frees up a NIT auto-bid to become a at-large bid. Not sayin it’s possible but UD loses in semifinals to Hofstra and finished one win better than W&M (22-11 to 21-11).

At this rate it seems like all of these tournaments will be cancelled anyways. UD won't even have to decide as the decision will likely be made for them

March Madness has big problems already if they're going to play - both the opening site in Dayton & the 1st & 2nd round games in Cleveland if they keep it there will have no fans...

They may still play there, but with no fans:

@GoodmanHoops
Well, looks like the First Four will be played without fans. … if it’s still going to take place in Dayton.

NCAA first-round tourney site also in Cleveland.
