The ACC has announced that Monday’s scheduled men’s basketball matchup (Feb. 8) between North Carolina and Miami has been postponed. According to the league: “the postponement follows a meeting of personnel from both schools, who mutually concluded the game could not move forward today.”
The decision to postpone was announced just two hours before UNC and Miami were set to start player: 7 p.m.
It's about two hours before the scheduled tip between Miami and North Carolina, but ACC just announced the contest has been postponed after the schools "mutually concluded" the game could not be played.

Earlier in the day, on Monday, video — obtained by The Daily Tar Heel — showed Day’Ron Sharpe and Armando Bacot of UNC at a social gathering following Saturday’s win over Duke. Sharpe and Bacot were around at least a half-dozen other people in the video; both players were mask-less at the event, too.
The ACC, however, has no specific protocols for how to handle this type of situation; therefore it’s up to the university to determine a punishment for the players.
UNC said earlier today Roy Williams will address the matter postgame. Team adhering to "proper ACC medical protocols."
Translation: Assuming Bacot/Sharpe test negative today, they would be cleared to play — and then it would be up to UNC whether or not to disciple them somehow. https://t.co/D1Uyx6ssn6
