We have our first COVID delay in college basketball

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.

A live look at the 2020-21 season:

    Idiotic. 1 positive cancel for 2 weeks. Incredibly dumb.

      Yeah. They should just play fast and loose with the young men’s health so that we can be entertained.

      Yeah it’s such a deadly threat, let’s all stay glued to the nightly news, wear masks and stay 6 ft apart. Sound silly as hell when you say out loud.

      Exactly!! These young men if infected will most likely have zero to very minimal symptoms and have a fast recover rate of 99.9%.

    14 days mandatory is ridiculous. Oh, well. We’ll survive…and so will every single player who tests positive. Very unlikely we win a national title anyways.

    This ignorance has to stop. It has gone on far too long. The sanity of people everywhere is at stake. It’s taken over everybody’s living and livelihood for basically the same symptoms and death rate as the flu. I’m on the verge of losing my job because of this and everyone’s ignorance falling for the power trips of those who are otherwise not considered relevant.

    The entire season is likely to be called off at some point because there will be a six-week lockdown. They may as well cancel it now in order to fight this virus and save lives.

      Yah, because shutting everything down has been shown to be really effective. Don’t be such a sheep.
