Positive COVID-19 tests derail Kansas, Virginia tourney runs

(AP) — Major conferences have had to call off tournament games with cancellations involving No. 11 Kansas and No. 16 Virginia.

The Jayhawks withdrew from the Big 12 Tournament on Friday after a positive COVID-19 test within the program. That forced the cancellation of a semifinal matchup with No. 13 Texas.

In the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Cavaliers’ semifinal matchup with Georgia Tech was canceled due to a positive COVID-19 test, quarantining and contact tracing within the Cavaliers program.

The cancellation comes a day after Duke withdrew from the tournament and ended its season amid its own positive test.
