No. 19 Florida State has next three basketball games postponed by ACC due to COVID-19 issues

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The ACC announced Monday night that Florida State’s next three basketball games — at Boston College, at Pittsburgh, and at Virginia Tech — have been postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the Seminoles’ program.

The three games were scheduled to be played on Tuesday Feb. 2, Saturday, Feb. 6, and Monday, Feb. 9.

The Seminoles’ next scheduled game will be at home against Wake Forest on Feb. 13.

Florida State was ranked No. 19 in the Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll released Monday.

“The postponement follows a positive test, subsequent quarantining, and contact tracing within the Florida State men’s basketball program,” the league said in a statement. “The team is adhering to the outlined protocols within the ACC Medical Advisory Group report, which is available on theACC.com (full report).”

Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton and his Seminoles will be on pause until Feb. 13 because of a positive test, subsequent quarantining, and contact tracing in the program.

Further updates and schedule adjustments by the ACC will be announced at a later date.

This is the second time this season FSU has had to pause its basketball program due to COVID-19 issues. Because of that, games against Duke, Syracuse, and Pittsburgh were postponed following a positive test, subsequent quarantining, and contact tracing in the program.
