The Chicago State University men’s basketball team will not travel for two regularly scheduled Western Athletic Conference games this week, and its women’s team will not host two games, the school said late Tuesday, citing the spread of the coronavirus.

The school said in a statement that it was making the move with the “health and well-being of the campus community in mind.”

The cancellations are believed to be the first by a major sport in the United States due to the virus.

The university said the men’s team would not travel to Seattle University in Washington or Utah Valley University for WAC games on Thursday and Saturday. The school also said the women’s team would not host Seattle or Utah Valley at the campus’ Jones Convocation Center on the same days.

Chicago State said it is also evaluating whether to attend next week’s WAC tournament in Las Vegas. The school said it would make a decision about participation later this week. The school also said it is reviewing travel plans for intercollegiate sports teams.

Chicago State will save money by not flying to the last two contests. Those contests will result in forfeiture for CSU.

I mean Western has seen better days but graduation rates in the single digits for CSU. A degree from CSU means that maybe you have the aptitude and collective intelligence of an avergage high school Senior that scored a 22 on Her/His ACT. Like you might be as prepared or as smart as an average High school Senior coming out of CSU. I don't want to offend many people. Hence the post, so few graduate that there isn't a very big group to get offended.

CSU is on the search for a new women’s coach.
