Baylor coach calls for end of COVID-19 testing at NCAAs
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Baylor women’s coach Kim Mulkey thinks the NCAA should do away with COVID-19 testing during the Final Four for both women and men. Mulkey said after Baylor’s loss to UConn that it would be a “shame” if a player tested positive and couldn’t participate in the Final Four or national title game. She suggested that the NCAA “dump the COVID testing” and let those teams “battle it out.” Players and coaches at both tournaments have been tested daily and have been wearing devices that help assist with contact tracing. Through Saturday, there had been two confirmed positive tests at the women’s tournament.
