North Carolina-Louisville women’s basketball game postponed

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — No. 2 Louisville’s home women’s basketball game against North Carolina set for Tuesday night has been postponed.

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced the postponement Sunday night after a positive COVID-19 test, quarantining and contact tracing within the Tar Heels program.

The game was originally postponed from Dec. 13 due to coronavirus issues within the Louisville program and later rescheduled for Friday, though it was pushed back again due to what the league described as travel-logistics issues for visiting North Carolina.

The league also announced that No. 22 Syracuse’s home game Thursday against Virginia, and Louisville’s trip to Florida State next weekend have also been postponed, with both the Cavaliers and Seminoles remaining in COVID-19 protocols following announcements of positive tests.

The league has adjusted the schedule to have Clemson visit Louisville next Sunday as a replacement game for the Cardinals.
