GREENSBORO, N.C. – The ACC has canceled the remainder of the ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament as coronavirus cases continue to grow.
The conference released this statement on Thursday afternoon:
“Following additional consultation with the league’s presidents and athletic directors, and in light of the continued conversations surrounding the fluidity of COVID-19, the Atlantic Coast Conference will immediately cancel the remainder of the 2020 ACC Tournament.

We are disappointed for our student-athletes, schools and fans to have to make this decision; however, the overall health and safety of all involved is the priority.”Atlantic Coast Conference
