All sorts of freestyle tournaments are OK but collegiate wrestling is being delayed and cancelled.  Please explain?

99% of the wrestlers in freestyle tournaments are still in college.

Aren't they participating in freestyle tournaments as individuals and folkstyle tournaments as members of a team representing the schools?

Yes I suppose that's correct.  Just bummed that we have no collegiate wrestling.

If they allow wrestling they gotta allow basketball and all other spring/winter sports

Well no one has pulled the NCAA basketball games scheduled to open up the season on Nov 25.....that no one except the Ivy League.  Div II and II is a different story.  No $$$ at stake.  Most Div I schools are hosting the winter student athletes on campus and planning on feeding them in a quasi bubble.  They don't want anyone going home, catching it and bringing back into the bubble.
