SEC officials followed the lead of other conferences by deciding to ban attendance by fans for the tournament beginning with the Thursday games. On Wednesday night both games went on as scheduled with fans attending at Bridgestone Arena.
However, due to concerns about coronavirus the Southeastern Conference will not allow fans to attend the games on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and the championship game on Sunday.
All four games on the Thursday schedule are scheduled for TV coverage on the SEC Network. The remaining games on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be continued on as scheduled on ESPN.
