COVID-19 issues wreak havoc with college basketball schedule

Ncaa BasketballCollege basketball is returning from the Christmas break with a notably lighter schedule after the pandemic caused several games to get canceled or postponed.

The Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East each scrapped three games scheduled to take place over the next several days. That included No. 2 Duke’s game at Clemson on Wednesday.

The Big East cited COVID-19 issues within the Georgetown and St. John’s programs in canceling their game scheduled for Saturday. Big East officials said they would attempt to reschedule the games in accordance with the conference’s game cancellation policy.

In women’s basketball, No. 21 Iowa’s Thursday game at Penn State was called off due to positive COVID-19 tests within Penn State’s program as well as a pair of games for No. 4 Arizona in Southern California this weekend.
