Tired of COVID college football news? How about some COVID college basketball news! This afternoon, it was announced that the Miami vs. Stetson game on November 25 has been postponed due to a positive test within Stetson’s program, making it college basketball’s first COVID delay.
Why should you care? Kentucky doesn’t play either team, after all, but it’s another reminder that, per the NCAA’s guidelines, even one positive test sidelines an entire team for 14 days. From the NCAA:
When a Tier 1 individual (e.g. players, coaches, trainers, physical therapists, medical staff, equipment staff, officials) tests positive, it is suggested that all other Tier 1 individuals quarantine as soon as the results are known for a period of 14 days, with contact tracing beginning immediately to determine who was subject to a high-risk exposure.
