-UNDATED (AP) - No. 3 Villanova’s next three games have been postponed because of COVID-19 issues within the program.

The Wildcats, at 8-and-1, were scheduled to play Tuesday at DePaul, Friday vs. Marquette, and Jan. 13 at Xavier. No makeup dates have been announced.

Coach Jay Wright announced last week he had tested positive for COVID-19 and the program paused all activities. Wright was scheduled to return to practice on Tuesday.

In other virus-related developments in college hoops:

- Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski says he won’t be able to coach the No. 21 Blue Devils when they face Boston College on Wednesday night, but he hopes to be out of quarantine in time to return for their game against Wake Forest on Saturday. Krzyzewski said he and his wife were placed into quarantine last Friday after a member of his family tested positive for COVID-19. He said he and his wife were both tested Monday, and both were negative.
