ATLANTA (AP) Georgia Tech athletic director Todd Stansbury says the school met the requirements of its men's basketball postseason ban as part of punishments from the NCAA even though most of the postseason was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a letter to fans Thursday made available to the public, Stansbury said he was recently informed Georgia Tech completed its mandated ban by removing itself from the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament on March 2. Georgia Tech made that decision when it withdrew its appeal of the NCAA postseason ban.
In the letter, Stansbury wrote the school "recently received official confirmation from the NCAA Committee on Infractions that we met the conditions of the penalty by not participating in this year's ACC Tournament."
