The Syracuse Orange women’s basketball team has postponed their contest versus North Carolina, originally scheduled for Thursday, December 31. This is the second game changed this week due to a positive COVID-19 test within the Orange program. Syracuse previously canceled its Dec. 28 contest versus Morgan State.
“The postponement follows a positive test, subsequent quarantining and contact tracing within the Syracuse women’s basketball team,” the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Monday afternoon. A make-up date for the game will be determined.
