STATEMENT ON WEATHER IN KANSAS CITY

DAN GAVITT, NCAA VICE PRESIDENT OF MEN’S BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS

“We are monitoring the weather situation on the ground and in our tournament control center and are fully prepared. We do not anticipate any game delays.

“Prior to the tournament, all venues submit emergency management plans to the NCAA national office for review. During the tournament, NCAA onsite coordinators are in regular contact with facility management at every venue to manage any situation that may arise.

“In Kansas City, all of the teams and officials are already onsite. We are exploring extending their hotel stays if their travel is delayed after the games because of inclement weather.

“This region routinely has winter snow and has the appropriate equipment and procedures to manage these winter conditions.

“We encourage fans planning to attend games to pay attention to the weather, use good judgment and follow any directions from local authorities regarding travel and weather.”
