– Teleconference with University of Louisville Athletics Director Vince Tyra addressing concerns surrounding the widespread health risks associated with COVID-19. The University of Louisville, in conjunction with the Atlantic Coast Conference, has canceled all athletic related activities for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year. One item from Vince is being reported incorrectly. When he spoke about savings offsetting NCAA funding, that was limited to our savings from spring sports ACC events that were not occurring likely offsetting our share of the NCAA distribution from the men’s basketball tournament only. That was not meant to encompass our total annual ACC distribution with our total NCAA distribution. To clarify, his comment was meant to say that we could likely see travel and expense savings related to spring sports cancellation that would likely offset what may be lost with our share of the NCAA MBB tourney distribution.
