Virginia-Michigan State basketball recreation postponed by coronavirus
A game between Virginia and Wake Forest scheduled for December 16 was postponed last week due to positive coronavirus tests and contact tracing under the Demon Deacons program. Wake Forest announced on November 30th that team activities would be suspended, and manager Steve Forbes said this week that a game against VMI scheduled for December 21st “will not take place”.
The Cavs, who have never beaten the Spartans in five meetings, would have hosted their highest non-conference opponent in program history. The game was to be televised by ESPN to a national audience. Michigan state was already in Charlottesville when the game was postponed, according to the Lansing State Journal, and will return to its campus on Wednesday.
Earlier Tuesday, the Daily Progress reported that Virginia’s game against William & Mary, which was scheduled for Saturday, had been postponed to Sunday due to a positive test within the latter program. The Cavs said Tuesday night that the status of this game is “yet to be determined”.
