Pitt has had yet another men’s basketball game pushed back, as Wednesday night’s game at George Tech has been postponed for a second time, the Panthers announced on Sunday.
The postponement came as a result of a positive COVID-19 test and subsequent contact tracing in the Georgia Tech program. A rescheduled date was not immediately announced. The Panthers and Yellow Jackets were originally scheduled to play on Tuesday night, with the game already pushed back one day. Georgia Tech has now postponed three consecutive games due to COVID-19 issues.
Pitt’s next scheduled game will be at home against Syracuse on Saturday, with a noon tip off on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh. The Panthers will be facing the Orange for the second consecutive game, following last Wednesday’s comeback win at the Carrier Dome.
The Panthers have had four ACC games postponed this season, with COVID issues at Pitt postponing games at Duke on Dec. 29 and against Notre Dame on Jan. 2 and Florida State’s COVID-19 tests postponing Pitt’s game against the Seminoles on Jan. 9
Pitt will make up the game against Notre Dame on 30. The Panthers only other half-week off in their schedule is currently Feb. 13-14, when Georgia Tech plays at Clemson.
