NOW: How the NCAA made Indianapolis safe to host this year’s college basketball tournament

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The NCAA has made a number of moves to ensure the safety of the teams playing in this year’s big college basketball tournament.

The entire tournament is taking place in the Hoosier state this year to create a “modified bubble” to boost to safety and wellness of players and coaches as they get ready for three weeks of tournament play.

Strict testing and housing protocols are only the beginning of what organizers hope to make the 2021 tournament safe and a possibility.

Fans are able to attend games this year, but facilities are restricted to filling arenas up to 25% capacity.

This move will allow fans to become part of the game atmosphere while also ensuring social distance from the teams and the fans within themselves.
