At this time, it’s not clear if a player tested positive for the virus. Or it was someone else close to the team in a coach or a support staff member.
This is the first time since the 1994-95 season that the team missed the NCAA Tournament.
“Unfortunately, after going an entire season with no positive COVID-19 tests among our men’s basketball student-athletes and coaching staff, one member of our program tested positive following Wednesday’s ACC Tournament game in Greensboro,” Duke Vice President and Director of Athletics Kevin White said. “After working with our medical professionals and following Duke and ACC Medical Advisory Group health, safety, and contact tracing protocols, the student-athletes on our team are now in quarantine. Since last March when the pandemic started, we have listened to our medical experts and always put safety at the forefront of any determinations regarding the competition. As a result, this will end our 2020-21 season. We wish every team still playing college basketball good health and the very best during the next few weeks.”
With the withdraw from the tournament, the Florida State Seminoles have advanced to the semifinals on Friday. The Blue Devils end their season with a 13-11 record, including a 9-9 ACC record.
