Locker Room Access – The Pac-12 Conference has made the decision to limit access to team locker rooms to only student-athletes and essential staff at the upcoming Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament and all Pac-12 Championships until further notice. Media will not be permitted to enter team locker rooms, but will continue to have access to interview student-athletes and coaches at designated areas outside of the locker room. This decision is made given the close quarters and personal nature of the locker room environment, and after consultation with our schools, and consideration of the current recommendations of health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
