Sunday's Game Against UTEP Will Not Be Played
  • https://arizonawildcats.com/news/20...ays-game-against-utep-will-not-be-played.aspx
    TUCSON, Ariz. - After consultation with the Pac-12 Conference, University of Arizona leadership, UTEP and their conference partners, the Arizona Men's Basketball game on Sunday, Nov. 29 will not be played due to a positive COVID-19 case within the UTEP men's basketball program as well as ensuing contact tracing and mitigation protocols.

    Arizona is exploring opportunities to replace the game.

    This news is very disappointing to the student-athletes, coaches and fans. However, health and safety must remain our top priorities as we move forward this season.

UTEP needs to have a backup plan. For example Baylor had a couple of games cancelled, so they just jumped on a plane and went to Vegas to play a couple of games that were unscheduled. From what I have heard, Vegas has a bunch of arenas that are available and can be booked at will it seems. T Mobile arena is open and they welcome the business.

In football, SDSU on 2 days notice went to Colorado to play.
