William & Mary will not be making its scheduled trip to NC State on Monday because of COVID-19 issues within the Tribe program. NC State is seeking a last-minute replacement, but that will be a challenge with such late notice.

Then again, NC State doesn’t necessarily have to play a replacement opponent on Monday, since the Wolfpack’s next game isn’t until Saturday. If State is able to find a replacement, I’d have to think it will be somebody within an easy bus ride.

Having to scramble like this is unfortunately going to be a fact of life during basketball season, and several ACC programs already have had games canceled or postponed. More than two dozen games have been put off across the country, and we’re just five days into the season, which is not exactly an encouraging start.
