(670 The Score/AP) Several college basketball conference tournaments were canceled moments before tipoff Thursday amid the coronavirus pandemic, putting the NCAA Tournament at risk.

The Big Ten, Big 12 and the SEC tournaments announced they were calling their competitions off, and other conferences were expected to follow suit soon.

The men's NCAA Tournament is one of the most popular events on the American sports calendar. March Madness draws hundreds of thousands of fans to arenas from coast to coast. It's scheduled to start next week.
