2020 ACC Tournament canceled amid coronavirus pandemic concerns

Florida State was awarded the ACC championship

Following first and second round games on Tuesday and Wednesday, the ACC announced it has ended its postseason tournament on Thursday over fears of coronavirus spread. The league made its decision just minutes before Florida State and Clemson -- which were set to tip at 12:30 p.m. ET -- took the court and began the game after both teams warmed up in preparation of playing.

"Following additional consultation with the league's presidents and athletic directors, and in light of the continued conversations surrounding the fluidity of COVID-10, the Atlantic Coast Conference will immediately cancel the remainder of the 2020 ACC Tournament," said the ACC. 

The ACC awarded regular season champion Florida State the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

"We are disappointed for our student-athletes, schools and fans to have to make this decision; however, the overall health and safety of all involved is the priority," the league said.
