CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team postponed Saturday’s home game against Tulane as a result of COVID-19 issues within the Bearcats’ program.

Per the release, the game was postponed because of “a positive COVID-19 case and the ensuing contact tracing of student-athletes at Cincinnati.”

It is the second game the Bearcats have postponed this week after Wednesday’s game against East Carolina was put on hold for the same reasons.

UC’s game against Tulane has been rescheduled for Friday, Fe. 26.

The Bearcats (3-7) next game is Wednesday, Jan. 20 at Temple. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET.
