NYSFSSAA cancels Federation Basketball Tournament of Champions
The Basketball Tournament of Champions has been canceled, the New York State Federation of Secondary Schools Athletic Association announced Friday.
Officials say that Fordham University pulled out of hosting this year's championship event. After trying to find another venue with COVID-19 protocols and restrictions in place, the association says it was forced to cancel.
“As we continue to address the impact of COVID-19, the Federation Executive Board continues to face challenging decisions impacting interscholastic athletics,” says NYSFSSAA executive secretary Jim Foster. “We remain hopeful and optimistic the Federation Tournament of Champions will be held in March 2023 to bring the four associations' best teams together.”
