The NCAA stated one obvious thing regarding the men's basketball tournament that starts next week but was left wondering about another topic probably not considered. The governing body for the March Madness basketball tournament said all a team will need is a minimum of five healthy players to suit up for a tournament game.

And coaches?

Trying to foresee situations where teams can lose players to the coronavirus, the possibility of an entire coaching staff getting sidelined is something the committee will revisit.

"Honestly, it's probably something we should talk about as a committee," NCAA senior VP of basketball Dan Gavitt said.

It's been almost one year since college basketball abruptly canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 basketball tournaments got canceled with no postponement. Now, the NCAA is pressing forward with a tournament scheduled to start next week held entirely in the greater Indianapolis area.
