    No official word as of yet from the KHSAA on what this means for the tournament, but my personal assumption is that this will be a "no fans in the stands" situation like the NCAA tournament.

    I find this to be a very interesting statement. With Title IX ruling most of the KHSAA decisions, I would be surprised if they limited fans to the boys tournament. The KHSAA allowed fans to attend the girls tournament this weekend at their own risk. I would think they would have the same policy for the boys tournament.

    The Girls just started yesterday. They have plenty of time to restrict fans. Julian Tackett’s message changed from 7:30ish to 9:00ish. They are evolving through The Corona like everyone else. Title IX shouldn’t even be a discussion right now IMO.

    My point is .... “If this virus is that deadly and an issue of public safety why is it not an issue this week?”

    If it is a issue of public safety then why do the people that are gathering this weekend not matter?

    Per Jason Frakes on Twitter:

    "Tickets will be assigned seating and separated, with several empty rows."

    "
    This is the plan for the rest of the girls Sweet 16 and the entire boys Sweet 16, but Tackett says there could be even more changes for the boys tournament if circumstances warrant."

    "No bands, no cheerleaders for remainder of Sweet 16s"

    Per WKYT on Twitter:

    "JUST IN: Julian Tackett says starting tomorrow (Friday), there will be an “extreme limit placed” on the people that can be at the Girls’ Sweet 16."

    "Julian Tackett says bands and cheerleaders will not be allowed at the Girls’ Sweet 16 starting Friday. Small group of people in the stands starting tomorrow."

    "Tackett says the Boys’ Sweet 16 could have more changes pending further guidance from the CDC."

    Per Al Willman on Twitter:

    "Here’s the Cliff’s Notes.

    — KHSAA limiting attendance for state basketball, starting tomorrow.
    — Only those on postseason rosters and four family members apiece can go.
    —Seating will be numbered and separated, by empty rows.
    — Essential administrators
    — No bands/cheer"

    Anderson News' Chris Leach tweeted a photo of a worker wiping down the table and microphones at Rupp with Clorox wipes prior to KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett coming in to speak.
