NCAA Asked To Consider Tournament WITHOUT Fans To Protect Student Athletes

With the threat of corona virus at an all-time high, the National College Players Association, an non-profit group that advocates on the behalf of student-athletes, has released a statement making the case for the NCAA to look into possibly holding the tournament this year WITHOUT fans in the stands. While the NCAA has not made a statement on this request, they have made a statement in regards to health concerns, stating:

"In the wake of an outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the NCAA is taking concerted steps to maintain the first-rate delivery of NCAA championship experiences for student-athletes, team personnel and fans. Championships staff members will work in conjunction with host schools, conference offices and community partners to monitor COVID-19 developments through the NCAA Sport Science Institute."

If this request DOES happen, do you think the game would change? I wonder how it would affect the players.
