Pitt men’s basketball loses game to COVID

The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Georgia Tech has called off its third straight men’s basketball game because of COVID-19.

The Yellow Jackets (6-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) were set to host Pittsburgh (6-2, 2-1) in Atlanta on Wednesday. But the game has been postponed because of positive tests within the Georgia Tech program. No makeup date has been determined.

The Yellow Jackets haven’t played since a Jan. 3 victory over Wake Forest. They also postponed games at Notre Dame and Louisville over the past week.

This will be the second straight postponement for the Panthers, following this past Saturday’s scheduled home game against Florida State.

Georgia Tech is now set to resume Saturday at N.C. State. The Panthers will have a 10-day layoff before their next game, also Saturday at home against Syracuse.
