It’s official: WVU-Baylor basketball on Tuesday has been postponed.

The release from the school said the game was postponed in response to WVU being “unable to meet the required COVID-19 thresholds on Monday, as established by the Big 12 Conference.”

WVU athletic director Shane Lyons also released a statement:

“Our intent is to get the spread under control as soon as possible for the health and safety of all involved,” Lyons said. “While this issue has hit many college basketball programs, we have been fortunate to have played 13 games so far this season.”

Original story:

CBS Sports college basketball reporter Matt Norlander has a report out that Tuesday’s men’s basketball game between West Virginia and Baylor has been postponed due to COVID-19 protocols within the WVU program.

WVU coach Bob Huggins spoke to the media on Monday morning ahead of Tuesday’s game and mentioned that the team had been tested and was waiting for those results — which apparently came back with bad news for the Mountaineers. 247Sports’ Chris Anderson reports that neither program has been informed of the postponement yet.
