THE FLATS – Georgia Tech men’s basketball’s Wednesday night game against Notre Dame has been postponed due to Covid-19-related protocols within Tech’s program. A makeup date have not been determined.
In addition to the postponement, Georgia Tech men’s basketball has temporarily paused all athletic activities in adherence with guidelines from the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Medical Advisory Group. The Yellow Jackets will resume athletic activities when permissible in accordance with the ACC Medical Advisory Group’s guidelines.
“Like we’ve said throughout the pandemic, the health and safety of our student-athletes and staff is our No. 1 priority,” Georgia Tech director of athletics Todd Stansbury said. “Therefore, in accordance with the protocols established by the ACC Medical Advisory Group, we are temporarily pausing athletic activities within our men’s basketball program. This unfortunately includes the postponement of tomorrow’s game at Notre Dame. Our full focus is on the health of our student-athletes and staff. We’re looking forward to our team returning to action as soon as it’s safe and appropriate to do so within the Medical Advisory Group’s guidelines.”
The Yellow Jackets currently have a 6-3 overall on the season, including a 2-1 start to ACC play with wins over North Carolina (72-67) last Wednesday and Wake Forest (70-54) Sunday.
