The Monday night men’s basketball game between the Virginia Cavaliers and Northern Iowa Panthers has been canceled following the deaths of three football players on Sunday night. The three players — Lavel Davis, Jr., D’Sean Perry, and Devin Chandler — were shot by a fellow student while returning from a field trip to Washington, D.C.

Former Cavaliers football player Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. has been taken into custody by police as a suspect. Two other students were injured in the shooting.

The university also canceled all Monday classes.
