Sorry Duke fans but a positive COVID-19 test has forced the men’s basketball team to withdraw from the ACC tournament. Therefore, Duke will not play today (Thursday) against Florida State, making this the first time the Blue Devils have missed the NCAA tournament since 1995. With the cancellation of the Duke vs. Florida State quarterfinal game, the Seminoles advance into Friday’s semifinals and will play either Virginia Tech or North Carolina.
Duke’s 24-season streak is the third-longest in NCAA history, trailing North Carolina (27) and Kansas (30).
The positive test involves a player who did not play Wednesday against Louisville in the second round of the ACC Tournament, a source told CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander.
