Duke Blue Devils postpones men's college basketball games against Clemson Tigers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Duke has postponed its game Wednesday against Clemson because of COVID-19 issues within the Blue Devils' men's basketball program, the team announced Monday.

Duke's game against Notre Dame on Saturday also was postponed, officials announced Wednesday.

Duke (11-1) hasn't played since last Wednesday, when it beat Virginia Tech 76-65.

The Blue Devils, ranked No. 2 in this week's AP poll, have been one of the nation's elite teams this season. They opened the season with a win over Kentucky and also beat then-No. 1 Gonzaga in Las Vegas in late November. Their loss came at Ohio State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

The ACC modified its rescheduling policy last week as a result of the rapidly spreading omicron variant. Games that are not able to be played will be rescheduled, and if a new date cannot be found, the game will be considered a no contest. ACC teams must have a minimum of seven players and one coach in order to play.
