Louisville has canceled its men’s basketball game Friday afternoon against UNC Greensboro and paused team activities indefinitely following a positive COVID-19 test within the program and subsequent quarantining and contract tracing.

The preceding game scheduled between Duquesne and Winthrop at the Cardinals’ KFC Yum! Center home arena also has been canceled because of coronavirus-related issues, a release stated Thursday night.

The release added that no determination has been made on Louisville’s game Wednesday night at No. 4 Wisconsin in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge or its Dec. 16 Atlantic Coast Conference opener against NC State.

The positive test among “Tier 1” individuals — involving student-athletes, coaches, managers and staff — was detected during a team test Thursday. Three tests are conducted weekly per ACC protocols. The game had been scheduled for 2 p.m.

“We are adhering to the ACC and university protocols, and will monitor the matter day-to-day,” athletic director Vince Tyra said.
