The Duke basketball program is ending its season less than 24 hours after beating the Louisville Cardinals in the ACC Tournament.
Duke was red hot in the ACC Tournament after a lackluster season, but things have come to an end after the Blue Devils were forced to withdraw due to a positive COVID-19 test.
“This will end our 2020-21 season,” athletic director Kevin White said in a statement.
“We wish every team still playing college basketball good health and the very best during the next few weeks.”
Duke was scheduled to play Florida State.
The Seminoles will now automatically advance to the semifinals.
“I feel deeply for our players, who have done a terrific job all season in taking care of each other and the team,” head coach Mike Kryzewski said.
“I am extremely proud of their collective attitudes and effort, which could not have been stronger. We are disappointed we cannot keep fighting together as a group after two outstanding days in Greensboro.”
Well, this is March. So enjoy the madness.
