One member of Georgia Tech tests positive for COVID-19, unable to participate this weekend of NCAA Tournament

Georgia Tech head coach Josh Pastner informed the media that one member of his team’s travel party tested positive for COVID-19. That unnamed person is now in isolation and unavailable to participate in the NCAA Tournament this weekend.

According to Pastner the team is still eligible to play in the NCAA Tournament, though.

The Yellow Jackets, a 9 seed, open play against Loyola Chicago. The winner of that matchup will move on to (likely) face 1-seed Illinois.

Georgia Tech defeated Florida State 80-75 last week to win the 2021 ACC Tournament. The Yellow Jackets advanced through the semifinals when their opponent, Virginia, was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to a positive COVID-19 test.
