Georgia Tech’s men’s basketball game Wednesday night at Alabama-Birmingham has been canceled because of positive COVID-19 tests within the Blazers program, the schools announced.

Tech (4-3, 0-1 ACC) embarked on a 27-game season schedule — which includes 20 conference games — last month. They have won four of their past five games after an 0-2 start.

Wednesday’s game at Bartow Arena in Birmingham, Ala., would have closed the Yellow Jackets’ non-conference schedule. It would have been the first meeting on the court between the two programs. The Blazers are scheduled to visit McCamish Pavilion each of the next two seasons.

Tech will resume its ACC play Dec. 30 at home against North Carolina (8 p.m., Fox Sports South).
