LAS VEGAS – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics learned on Thursday that, due to concerns about the safety of student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) has canceled the WAC Basketball Tournaments.

Plans are currently being implemented to bring both basketball teams, the cheer and dance squads, the pep band and on-site administrators home early, rather than on Sunday as originally scheduled. It is UTRGV’s goal to get everyone home on Thursday.

The tournament cancellation means that the UTRGV men’s basketball season is over following a 14-16 season that saw the Vaqueros go 9-7 in WAC play to earn the No. 2 seed in the tournament, the highest ranking in program history. UTRGV won eight of its final 10 games.

Due to the cancellation of the tournament, the automatic qualifiers into the NCAA Tournaments are given to the regular season champions – New Mexico State for men’s basketball and Kansas City for women’s basketball.
