FedEx Field's parking lot to be used as a coronavirus testing site

FedEx Field's parking lot will be utilized as a future coronavirus testing site for Prince George's County, Md, the Washington Redskins announced on Saturday. 

Prince George's County's health department is partnering with the state of Maryland to create a screening system in place at the venue in Landover, Md. Intentions are for the screening site to be running within the next week.

Former Virginia Cavaliers to live tweet a rebroadcast of UVA's 2019 National Championship

As the NCAA Tournament was canceled due to coronavirus concerns, this weekend CBS instead will broadcast several iconic March Madness matchups dating back to 1982. 

One of those marquee matchups will be the Virginia Cavaliers' National Championship Game against Texas Tech. The game will be shown on Sunday, March 22 from 2:00-4:00 p.m ET. 

What's even better is that three former Cavaliers, Kyle Guy, Ty Jerome and De'Andre Hunter, will be live-tweeting throughout the broadcast. The three NBA stars led Virginia back from being on the wrong end of the biggest upset in college basketball history, to the program's first-ever national championship. 

The trio will be sharing their thoughts through the @UVAMensHoops Twitter account on Sunday. 

Even if there's no March Madness this season, we'll get a unique look into the championship run through the players' minds.
