I understand, but two weeks would have given time for them to quarantine in the event of a positive test. Now, there‘s no wiggle room. No good either way, honestly.
Both VCU and St. Bonaventure did everything they were supposed to do and I think the A-10 absolutely made the right decision. The bigger question is regarding referee COVID protocol. You want the best refs you can get for your games, but one ref may have had a significant impact on two separate conferences if he is indeed the transmitter of COVID to both VCU and Duke. It will be interesting to follow St. Bonaventure at this point to see if any players test positive in the next couple of days. If they do, then the NCAA has to deal with LSU, and LSU is probably out of the tournament due to contact tracing. I hate to say it, but this issue is not over yet for the NCAA. It may very well still have legs.
