Another UConn women's basketball game off due to COVID-19 issues

The No. 3 UConn women's basketball team has had another game postponed because of coronavirus-related issues.

The Huskies, which saw their planned Thursday showdown with No. 6 Baylor canceled after Baylor coach Kim Mulkey tested positive for COVID-19, announced Wednesday they will not play their scheduled game at Xavier on Jan. 13 because the Musketeers have announced a pause to team activities because of contact tracing.

The schools say a makeup date will be announced at a later time.

Xavier is now the fifth Big East women's basketball team currently on pause for COVID-19-related issues in the 11-team conference, along with Creighton, Georgetown, Marquette and St. John's.

UConn's next game is scheduled at home on Saturday against Providence. Coach Geno Auriemma is seeking his 1,098th win, which would tie him with the late Pat Summitt for second all time, behind Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer's 1,103.
