Two University of North Carolina basketball players, one of whom allegedly received death threats, have apologized for breaching COVID-19 protocols last weekend and causing the cancellation of the Tar Heels' home game Monday against the University of Miami.

"We apologize for not adhering to the University’s and athletic department’s guidelines and apologize to Coach [Roy] Williams and his staff for not stepping forward when he first addressed it with us on Sunday," read a statement issued by the UNC athletic department on behalf of the players — Armando Bacot and Day'Ron Sharpe — and team managers, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
