WACO, Texas — The Big 12 has canceled all competition for the rest of the 2019-20 school year due to coronavirus concerns. That means Baylor will not be able to compete in any spring sports.

In a statement, the Big 12 said:

"Due to the on-going developments related to COVID-19 the Big 12 Conference announces that all organized team activities whether organized or voluntary, including team and individual practices, meetings, and other organized gatherings, have been suspended until March 29 and will be re-evaluated at that time. In addition, all conference and non-conference competitions are cancelled through the end of the academic year, including spring sports that compete beyond the academic year."

The NCAA announced earlier today it plans to grant eligibility waivers to student-athletes competing in spring sports, including baseball, softball and tennis.
