event had just been postponed.
"At this point, so many things are changing so quickly,' Washington said.
Spring sports still unsettled: The NYSPHSAA announcement dealt almost exclusively with the decision on handling the suspended winter sports season, but the organization also acknowledged that there is a looming decision facing sections and the state boy on spring sports.
The NYSPHSAA reiterated that sections and schools are individually determining their projected start dates, but the state office set April 27 as the date on which it expects to determine the status of championship events for spring sports.
On the move: Former Cooperstown basketball star Tyler Bertram revealed last week that he intends to transfer from University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
Bertram appeared in 12 games in his redshirt freshman season. He averaged 9.3 minutes, 0.6 points and 0.8 rebounds per game.
Bertram cited a desire to play somewhere with a more up-tempo style and hopefully move closer to home so that his family could attend games.
No place to go for now: The story is about a junior-college player' status, but it also reflects something that has become an issue for high school juniors and seniors: Making college visits is not a realistic option for now and probably through the end of the spring -- if not longer.
Former West Genesee basketball player Malik Zachery, who boosted his recruiting profile substantially with a year of prep school ad two seasons in junior college, has Division I scholarship offers and no opportunity to make visits.
The 6-foot-2 guard is at home in Syracuse, forced to leave Chipola Junior College in Marianna, Florida., due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"We really don't know how this is all going to work right now," Zachery said. "This is a 'dead period' anyway. It ends April 15. I just hope (the date) stays April 15 and I can start taking visits so we can get this process going."
Zachery, recovering from hand surgery following a cooking accident that ended his season in December, has offers from California, Fresno State, Mississippi, Nebraska, and several others. He's heard from Iona, Nevada, and Texas.
