first_imgThis year was to be a highlight for the Hall of Fame, located in Springfield, Massachusetts. Bryant, killed in January in a helicopter crash, headlined a decorated class featuring Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett that would have been enshrined in the recently renovated museum.But the coronavirus pandemic scuttled those plans and hit the Hall so hard that it eliminated several full-time positions and cut senior management pay in the 25-40% range.Hall of Fame President and CEO John Doleva says the rescheduled enshrinement festivities, the diminished museum visitation and the uncertainty regarding the Hall’s college and high school basketball events this fall “has forced us to make these very difficult decisions.” Mohegan Sun is a long-time partner of the Hall. Doleva says it can a operate a “near-bubble” to provide a secure environment for guests.___ ___The Ohio Valley Conference has postponed all fall sports including football, men’s and women’s cross country, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball and asked members to develop plans for league competition and championships in the spring.The decision by the OVC Board of Presidents also includes the fall schedules for men’s and women’s golf and men’s and tennis along with the non-traditional seasons for baseball and softball.But OVC members will be allowed to play up to four nonconference football games if a team is willing using NCAA standards for practice and and mental health guidance.OVC commissioner Beth DeBauche says the board voted to postpone after careful deliberation of the current uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic. OVC officials will continue monitor the situation hoping students will be able to play their fall sports in the spring. DeBauche says the OVC intends to ensure the postponed seasons are not eventually canceled if facts support that decision. ___Colonial Downs, Virginia’s pairmutuel horse racing track says it is cutting its 18-day racing meet short after just six days because of COVID-19.The track, in New Kent County, about 30 miles from Richmond, cited “recent test results” in a release announcing the decision, but spokesman Mark Hubbard declined to say how many people connected with putting on the meet had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.Hubbard said the decision was made with collaboration from the Virginia Department of Health, the Virginia Horsemen’s Benevolent Protection Association and the Virginia Racing Commission.The meet was scheduled to run through Sept. 2, with racing on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

They’re set to only play league games.“Every day we take risks, and it might be a little risky,” Tide quarterback Mac Jones said. “But we feel comfortable and we feel safe.” North Carolina State has administered 1,360 tests for COVID-19 to athletes, coaches and athletic staff with just eight people testing positive.

The Texans say a decision on fans attending games this season will be dictated by the COVID-19 pandemic in the Houston area, which is currently a hotspot. The announcement from the ASUN’s Presidents’ Council on Friday also says that providing a spring season for men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer and volleyball is a priority.“We’re not in the position today to guarantee it will happen, but we can promise to make every effort to get there. We owe that to our student-athletes, our athletic departments and our institutions,” ASUN Commissioner Ted Gumbart said in a statement.League schools may continue with such activities like training and practice in accordance with NCAA, local and state guidelines.The nine-team league operates mostly in the Southeast and does not play football.
