Wednesday's game between Boston College and host Georgia Tech has been postponed due to COVID-19 issues in the Eagles' program.

The Red River Rivalry game in the Big 12 between Texas and Oklahoma scheduled for Wednesday was also postponed due to inclement weather. That follows the postponement of Texas Tech-TCU on Tuesday night as unusually frigid temperatures grip the region.

Towson paused men's basketball activities Tuesday due to COVID-19, and there is a chance the program will not participate in the postseason, according to CBS Sports. At 4-13, the team is in eighth place in the Colonial Athletic Association.
