Coronavirus concerns will keep BTN's studio hosts out of Indy for B1G Tournament next week
The Big Ten Network studio crew covering college basketball will not be making the trip to Indianapolis next week, due to concerns about the coronavirus, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune.
On Friday, the Chicago Tribune reported that the B1G Tournament pregame, halftime, and postgame shows will be conducted from the Big Ten Network studio in Chicago. Usually, the group travels to the site of the conference tournament to provide on-site coverage of the event.

Dave Revsine will remain in Chicago, but the studio analysts who will also stay behind and produce the show from the headquarters were not mentioned by the Chicago Tribune. The network still plans to send announcers, analysts, crew and staff for the annual event.
Big Ten Network will cover the first three days of the B1G Tournament (Wednesday, March 11 – Friday, March 13), while CBS covers the final two days (Saturday, March 14 – Sunday, March 15). The tournament is held at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis.
Regular season games in the B1G will end on Sunday.
