ACC Cancels Remainder of Basketball Tournament

GREENSBORO – Initially set to exclude fans from attending tournament games starting Thursday, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) has now CANCELED the remainder of the tournament.

In the official statement, the ACC leaders expressed disappointment in having to make such a decision:

“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. For NCAA Tournament automatic qualification purposes, Florida State will represent the league as the ACC Champion. 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.”

The ACC isn’t the only one, either. Learn about other conference tournament changes in reaction to the corona virus here.
