UVA is out of the ACC tourney thanks to COVID -- which could keep them out of the NCAA.
Sick of acronyms yet? Yeah, same.
Here's the deal ... someone in the University of Virginia basketball program tested positive for coronavirus, forcing the team to withdraw from Friday night's ACC tournament semifinal game against Georgia Tech.
GT will now move on to the ACC championship game to face the winner of North Carolina vs. Florida State.
So, where does that leave UVA? That's a mystery at the moment.
The Cavaliers were the ACC regular-season champions -- and ESPN projected them to be a #4 seed in the NCAA tourney.
But, the COVID situation could force UVA into a mandatory quarantine that could conflict with the 1st round of the NCAA tourney, which is set to tip-off on Thursday.
Will UVA be out of the COVID protocol by then? If not, will the NCAA postpone the game? So many questions to be answered.
Bottom line ... we're still waiting for more info from the school and the NCAA -- but this could mean another solid team is OUT of the tourney before it even begins!!
