Pitt-Duke Game Postponed Due to COVID-19 Test

Pitt-Duke Game Postponed Due to COVID-19 Test

On Monday afternoon, the ACC announced that Tuesday night’s game between Pitt and Duke had been postponed due to “a positive test, subsequent quarantining, and contact tracing within the Pitt men’s basketball program.”

In the release, it was also announced that “the team is adhering to the outlined protocols within the ACC Medical Advisory Group report.” At the moment, no details outlining which players or staff have tested positive.

Pitt, sitting at 5-2 through seven games, was set to take on the Blue Devils with head coach Jeff Capel and Au’Diese Toney both returning after missing last week’s game against Louisville.

Capel, who tested positive for the virus on Dec. 19, said on Monday in a press conference that he was almost hospitalized due to the sickness but is now feeling better.

Capel allowed his team to return home for Christmas in between games on Dec. 22 against Louisville and at Duke on Dec. 29, a situation he admitted wrestling with before finally deciding on letting the players spend the holiday at home.

Duke is bad and they lost there best player. I would be surprised if they made the tournament. If Pitt had champagne I really believe they are a tournament team. This is a good team with almost everyone back next year.
The program is no doubt headed in the right direction.
