If the Red Raiders make the NCAA tournament in 2020, the pictures will look much different than the one above -- if photographers are considered "essential personnel," that is.

Today, NCAA President Mark Emmert said in a statement that all Championship events, including the Men's and Women's NCAA National Tournaments, will be played with, "only essential staff and limited family attendance." That means mostly empty arenas for the national tournament, which is scheduled to start March 17th, with play-in games in Dayton, Ohio.

You can read Mark Emmert's full statement below:

The Big 12 tournament is currently underway with full fan attendance, but the media is not allowed in the locker room after the games. Players will also not shake hands after the games are over.
