Former Piedmont High 3-star recruit Hunter Tyson was set to play his biggest game of the season Wednesday against Duke, but the game was ultimately postponed because of COVID-19 issues within the Blue Devils’ program, according to a report from The Athletic.

For the season, Tyson is averaging a career high in points (11.8), rebounds (5.8) and assists (1.4) per game. He’s currently shooting 49.1% from the field, 40% from 3-point range and 80.6% from the free-throw line.

After a 12-day layoff, Clemson is scheduled to play Virginia again on Jan. 4 at home.

Former Weddington 6-foot-6 wing Ryan Schwieger is in the middle of his senior season with the Loyola-Chicago basketball team.

The Ramblers haven’t played since Dec. 10 when they defeated Vanderbilt, 69-58. In that game, Schwieger scored 14 points and also had four rebounds and an assist as the team’s sixth man.

For the season, Schwieger is averaging 11.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 44% from the field and 41.7% from 3-point range.
