BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Temple University announced Thursday that the men’s basketball team is pausing all activity due to a positive case of COVID-19.
According to a statement from Temple Men’s Basketball coach Aaron McKie:
“The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and staff is always the number one priority with our program. Our medical staff and administration have done an incredible job of creating a safe environment for our team. Through our daily testing we work to mitigate the spread of the virus, but nothing is foolproof. This is not the way we anticipated opening our season, but we will follow our medical professionals’ guidance in preparation for restarting practice in two weeks.”
Virginia Tech was set travel to Connecticut, to play in the Air Force Reserve Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament this weekend against Temple.
Virginia Tech is still scheduled to face USF on Sunday. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m.
