Virginia won't travel to Indianapolis for the men's NCAA basketball tournament until Friday, with most of the Cavaliers' roster remaining in quarantine until Thursday, coach Tony Bennett said Sunday.
The Cavaliers had to withdraw from the ACC tournament this past Friday after a positive COVID-19 test. Bennett said the majority of the team is in quarantine as a result of contact tracing.
"We're going to keep testing daily. Our medical people, who are outstanding, are working with the NCAA to follow every protocol, and that's why our name was called," Bennett said. "The timing is never a good time to have it, and this is not ideal, but if you're going to have it, we took it to about the last day you could have a positive case."
Virginia earned a 4-seed in the NCAA tournament and is matched up with 13-seed Ohio.
