The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

___

West Virginia said Tuesday that no fans will be allowed at its men’s and women’s basketball games in December, except for essential personnel and the families of players and staff, due to recent spikes of COVID-19 cases in the state.

Get $50 off this RTX 3070 Cyber Monday gaming PC deal – delivered December 8

We know that without today’s Cyber Monday gaming PC deals it’s almost impossible to bag yourself a next-gen graphics card right now. But at Newegg you can grab this Nvidia RTX 3070-powered desktop rig for $1,449.99, which is a $50 saving over its list price. But that minute discount is not the main sell, the fact that you can have this sitting on your desktop by December 8 surely is. That’s Ampere in time for Christmas, with RTX 2080 Ti performance in a full system which almost costs the same as that card on its own.
