  • The NJCAA will not recognize a national champion for the 2020 Division I and II men’s and women’s basketball championships, or any 2020 spring sports.

    • The NJCAA has announced, along with the NCAA and NAIA, that student-athletes will not be charged with a season of competition for the 2020 season.
