The Blue Devils are the No. 2 team in the latest AP college basketball poll, with their only loss this season at Ohio State on November 30th. They last played a game on Wednesday, December 22nd, a 76-65 win over Virginia Tech at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Virginia Tech also has postponed their upcoming game against North Carolina for Covid issues as well.
The Notre Dame game was scheduled for Saturday, January 1st at the Joyce Center in South Bend, Indiana. No makeup dates or times for either contest have been announced.
The NCAA and CDC are currently in talks about reducing the required 10-day quarantine after a player tests positive for the virus. But until that happens, we’ll continue to see postponements and rescheduled games across college basketball. Only two games are on the slate for this evening, with Brown and Syracuse the only one involving two Division I teams.
