The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:


Virginia’s ACC/B1G Challenge game against No. 4 Michigan State on Wednesday night has been postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the Cavaliers’ program.

The No. 18 Cavaliers (3-1) are next slated to play William & Mary on Sunday. The Tribe shut its program down on Nov. 30 for COVID-19. The status of that game is to be determined.

Virginia did not reveal if the positive test was from a player, coach or staff member.


West Virginia says its men’s basketball home opener scheduled for Wednesday against Robert Morris has been canceled due to COVID-19 protocols within the Colonials’ program. The 11th-ranked Mountaineers are set to play next at home Sunday against No. 19 Richmond.
