AUGUSTA – As the coronavirus continues to spread across the country, we know that many people are working from home, or learning from home as the case would be with school-age children.

The national sports scene is on hold, with the NBA and NHL suspending play and the cancellation of the NCAA basketball tournaments. MLB, too, is on hold as the start of its season is pushed back.

So to help provide a little respite from the onslaught of coronavirus news, here’s 10 reaction videos (in no particular order) taken from the Augusta Civic Center during the state tournaments.
