Boston College-Virginia Tech men's basketball game postponed due to COVID-19

The Boston College Eagles won't be able to play at the No. 16-ranked Virginia Tech Hokies on Wednesday night. 

Both schools have confirmed that the Atlantic Coast Conference postponed Wednesday's game because of a positive COVID-19 test, subsequent quarantines and contact tracing impacting the Boston College team. No makeup date for the matchup was included in the brief statements shared by the programs. 

Boston College fell to 3-10 overall and 1-6 in conference play following an 80-70 loss to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish last Saturday. Because it's unknown how many players are currently unavailable for the Eagles, the status of their upcoming showdown with the Pitt Panthers scheduled for this coming Saturday is in doubt.

Boston College would play at the Clemson Tigers on Jan. 26 if the program can avoid mandatory 14-day quarantines for all Tier 1 personnel. Updates on BC's schedule are expected later in the week. 

Virginia Tech, meanwhile, has won three straight games and improved to 11-2 overall and 5-1 versus conference opponents with a 64-60 win over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Sunday. The Hokies are next scheduled to play at the Syracuse Orange this coming Saturday afternoon.
