The coronavirus continues to threaten the remaining sports seasons for the 2020-21 calendar year.

So far, it’s been mostly football seasons that have been canceled at the high school and college level. But we now have a major high school basketball team who’s decided to cancel its season.

According to Rivals reporter Corey Evans, Huntington Prep has decided it will not have its 2020-21 season due to the coronavirus.

Huntington Prep, a basketball-focused college preparatory school located in Huntington (WV), annually produces one of the top high school basketball teams each season, as well as a lot of high-major recruits. One of them is former Kentucky Wildcats guard Keldon Johnson, who was a first-round pick of the Spurs in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Other notable alumni include Wizards forward Thomas Bryant, Hornets forward Miles Bridges, and Timberwolves guard Andrew Wiggins, all of whom were players UK recruited.

While I still think we’ll see many states still have high school and college basketball seasons, this is a reminder that neither is a given at this point.
