Duke has pulled in the ACC championship and finished its season following a favorable COVID-19 test over the app.
The ACC announced Thursday the Blue Devils’ seminar tournament quarterfinal match against Florida State was canceled following”a favorable evaluation, following quarantining, and contact tracing over the Duke men’s basketball schedule.”
“I believe deeply for our gamers, who’ve done a great job all season in taking care of one another and the staff,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said as a part of a statement published from the faculty. “I’m extremely pleased with the collective approaches and effort, which may not have been more powerful. We’re disappointed we can’t keep fighting together as a team after two outstanding times in Greensboro. This year was a struggle for every single team throughout the nation and since we’ve observed over and above, this worldwide pandemic is quite cruel and isn’t yet over. While many defenses as we executed, nobody is immune to the dreadful virus.”
The Blue Devils moved to Joe Lunardi’s Next in his most recent Bracketology; they had to overcome Florida State and possibly get another win to get an at-large bidding on Sunday.
“Regrettably, after visiting an whole season without a positive COVID-19 evaluations one of our men’s basketball student-athletes and coaching team, 1 member of our app tested positive after Wednesday’s ACC Championship match in Greensboro,” White stated. “After working together with our caregivers and after Duke and ACC Medical Advisory Group health, security, and contact tracing protocols, the student-athletes in our staff are currently in quarantine. Since last March after the pandemic began, we’ve listened to our medical specialists and always put security in the forefront of any determinations concerning competition. Because of this, this will finish our 2020-21 year old. We want every team playing basketball great health and also the best during the upcoming few months”
Louisville (13-7, 8-5) declared all Tier 1 people within its own program have tested negative for COVID-19 and the group is”on a course to possess the requisite consecutive times of negative evaluations to have the ability to compete at the NCAA tournament.”
“While our period was different than any other I can recall, I loved the 2020-21 Duke Basketball team and has been honored to be their trainer,” Krzyzewski said. “We haven’t asked more of any group in our background, and they deserve tremendous credit for tackling everything like the exceptional young men that they are.”
