College basketball was the first major sport to be affected by COVID-19, as the NCAA Tournament was canceled right before Selection Sunday. The hope was that college hoops would be back without any hiccups next season, but that might not be possible.
Five months have passed since the NCAA cancelled its marquee tournament. Unfortunately, the United States hasn’t done a great job of slowing down the spread of the coronavirus. That’s why professional sports leagues like the NBA created a bubble for the rest of the 2020 season.
The NBA’s bubble in Orlando might not seem ideal to some fans, but the reality is that it’s working. Earlier this week, the league announced that all 343 coronavirus tests administered in the bubble came back negative.
