West Virginia men’s basketball’s 2020-21 home opener against Youngtown State has been postponed, the university announced Thursday afternoon.

The teams were originally scheduled to play in the WVU Coliseum on Dec. 2. YSU has paused its men’s basketball team activities due to a positive COVID-19 test. The Penguins first announced the pause on Nov. 16 and at that time announced a delay to the start of its men’s basketball season until No. 29.

“As we experience an unprecedented year in college athletics and across the entire country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to keep the health, safety and welfare of our student-athletes and staff first and foremost,” YSU athletic director Ron Strollo said in a release at the time.

In a release, WVU athletics said that the two teams are hoping to reschedule the game to be played later in December.

Now, WVU’s home opener is scheduled to be against Robert Morris on Dec. 9. Earlier today, RMU announced that it was pausing men’s basketball activities due to COVID-19 as well, however, the game against WVU was not announced to be effected.

WVU is scheduled to open its season on No. 25 against Northern Iowa in the Crossover Classic in South Dakota.
