The news is coming out non-stop this evening about college sports updates with a potential effect on Boston College Athletics. The latest comes to us from the Atlantic Coast Conference:

The rest of the ACC men’s basketball tournament will be played without fans, and “only essential tournament personnel, limited school administrators and student-athlete guests, broadcast television, and credentialed media members” will be allowed into the arena. That follows the lead of the NCAA, who is doing the same for all national tournament events over the coming weeks.

Boston College Men’s Basketball is currently in the beginning of the second half against Notre Dame in BC’s first round game, though BC is down by double digits and would not advance in the tournament anyway without mounting a comeback. But, here is the information for you nonetheless, should the Eagles pull out the upset win and get to the next round.

The only other major shoe left to drop, from a BC standpoint, appears to be a decision to be made by the Hockey East conference for the league semifinals and finals next week currently set to be played at the TD Garden. We’ll of course let you know once any decision is made there.
