The Gonzaga Bulldogs’ men’s basketball team is shutting down its operation for the next week due to Covid-19. This comes following the cancellation of the Zags’ No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown against the Baylor Bears. This came after at least one positive player test in their traveling party.
The university released the following statement.
Out of an abundance of caution and the well-being of student-athletes, in accordance with COVID-19 protocols Gonzaga has made the decision to pause men’s basketball competitions through December 14.
The timeline means the Zags will not play their next four opponents. The stretch featured low-profile tune-up games against Tarleton State, Southern, Northern Arizona, and Idaho. They are scheduled to face the currently No. 3 Iowa Hawkeyes on December 19th.
