The time for Saturday's men's basketball duel in Charlottesville between No. 23 Virginia and No. 24 Virginia Tech was changed Thursday.

The game will now start at 2 p.m. Saturday instead of at 4 p.m. ACC Network will still air the game.

ACC Network had planned to air Notre Dame's game at Pittsburgh at 2 p.m. Saturday, but that game was postponed Thursday because of Pitt's COVID-19 issues. So the Tech-UVa game was moved up. Notre Dame will instead visit North Carolina on Saturday, but that game will air at 4 p.m.
