ACC cancels 2020 ACC Tournament due to COVID-19

Greensboro — A fluid situation at the 2020 ACC Tournament continues to spiral. The ACC has cancelled the 2020 ACC Tournament due to complications and concerns with COVID-19 (coronavirus). On Wednesday the league announced that fans would no longer be allowed into the arena; earlier in the morning on Thursday, ACC Commissioner John Swofford stated that the league would in fact continue play.

Elsewhere around the college basketball universe, though, several other prominent leagues decided to cancel their tournaments, including the Big Ten, SEC and AAC.

Less than 30 minutes after that — and just before tip-off of the Florida State-Clemson game — the ACC decided to follow suit and also cancel the 2020 ACC Tournament.

Florida State, champions of the regular season, were named the ACC’s official champion for the 2019-20 season.
