FSU women’s hoops postpones second ACC game

A season filled with postponements for the Florida State women’s basketball team has seen another delay in a return to the court.

FSU was set to play at Wake Forest on Jan. 3 but postponed that game on Saturday. An upcoming game was slated for Jan. 7 against Duke, which has halted its season. That left FSU playing against No. 2 Louisville on Jan. 10, but that game has now been postponed.

“Virginia and Florida State remain in the COVID protocols following the announcement of positive tests,” the ACC announced in an email on Sunday night.

It is not clear if a player, coach or support staff member at FSU has tested positive.

The ACC also postponed other games: North Carolina at Louisville game scheduled for Tuesday and the Virginia at Syracuse game scheduled for Thursday. The postponement of UNC at Louisville follows a positive test, subsequent quarantining and contact tracing within the North Carolina women’s basketball program.

FSU’s next scheduled game would be Jan. 14 at Miami, the first of 12 remaining ACC regular-season games through the end of February.

The Seminoles’ schedule has been in flux since the start, with an opener at Florida A&M cancelled in November, the Florida game being delayed a few days before being played, a matchup at Northwestern was canceled and a game vs. Austin Peay was also postponed.
