It’s the third one the No. 25 Seminoles have had to call off in a week because of COVID-19 issues.

TALLAHASSEE — No. 25 Florida State’s visit to Pittsburgh scheduled for Saturday has been postponed due to COVID-19 testing issues within the Seminoles basketball program.

The postponement is the third this week for FSU due to virus. Duke’s visit last Saturday was postponed, as well as a trip to Syracuse scheduled on Wednesday. Pittsburgh played Syracuse instead, rallying for a 63-60 victory.
