At 20-12, Indiana was a virtual lock to return to the NCAA tournament for the first time since the 2015-16 season.
It would have been a fitting end for seniors De’Ron Davis and Devonte Green, who stuck with the program through a coaching change and in the case of Davis, a couple of significant injuries.
But Thursday’s news that remaining winter sports and all spring sports are officially canceled brought a shocking ending collegiate athletes around the country.
Several Indiana players responded Thursday via Instagram and Twitter to the abrupt ending to the season and in the case of Davis and Green, the end of their IU careers.
Here’s a compilation of those responses:

Tbh I don’t really have the words right now.. I’ve set a goal before this season started and worked so hard to achieve that goal. The moment I reach the promise land my college career was put to an end. I’m sick…but just like everything else I’ve dealt with, all I can do is move forward. Thank you to everyone who supported/believed in me through the years..I’ll be a Hoosier for life #GreenLightOut???
The year we make it to the big dance, the world is in a outbreak ? ?????
