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

Saturday’s Atlantic Coast Conference men’s basketball game between Louisville and No. 14 Virginia has been postponed, with Pittsburgh now scheduled to visit the Cavaliers in Charlottesville that day. The postponement follows one earlier Wednesday between Louisville at Syracuse following a positive test, quarantining and contact tracing within the Cardinals’ program.

Pitt and Virginia were scheduled to meet on Feb. 24.

The league also announced several rescheduled games: Georgia Tech’s visit to Clemson will move up a day to Feb. 12, with Tech hosting Pitt two days later. A postponed contest between Virginia and North Carolina State has been rescheduled for Feb. 24.

The National Women’s Hockey League has suspended the remainder of its season because of additional positive virus test results.

The NWHL announced the stunning move Wednesday on the eve of the semifinals that were scheduled to be televised nationally in the U.S. Two of the league’s six teams had already withdrawn from the tournament, with one citing several COVID-19 cases.

The league was hoping that playing in a quarantined bubble in Lake Placid, New York, and using saliva testing developed by Yale University would allow it to get through the season and playoffs and present the Isobel Cup. The pandemic also forced the cancellation of the remainder of the 2019-20 season.

The Southeastern Conference has announced the postponement of a pair of Tennessee women’s basketball games.

Both games were Top 25 matchups. No. 18 Tennessee’s game Thursday night at No. 24 Mississippi State and the rescheduled game with seventh-ranked Texas A&M game on Sunday have been postponed.

The league cited a combination of a positive test, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Lady Vols’ program.

No makeup dates were immediately announced.
