Senior student athletes — baseball, softball and golf — all over the country expressed displeasure for having their careers come to an abrupt end on Thursday, when the NCAA made the decision to cancel a multitude of sports, including the NCAA Tournament. Friday's decision allows those who are just starting their season have another year to play.
The decision does not include winter sports such as basketball and gymnastics, which would be heading into postseason tournament play.
