Spiders' Tuesday game against GMU is off, second straight postponement for UR

Richmond coach Chris Mooney: "Given a choice, you’d rather be moving and just operating at your normal pace."

The University of Richmond on Saturday had its second consecutive men’s basketball game postponed because of COVID issues in the opposition’s camp.

George Mason is unable to play its A-10 game at the Robins Center Tuesday night, and that follows the postponement of Saturday’s UR-at-Fordham game.

"Given a choice, you’d rather be moving and just operating at your normal pace," said Richmond coach Chris Mooney.

The Spiders (10-6, 1-2 A-10) through the league will work to reschedule the Mason and Fordham games. Richmond is scheduled to play next against Davidson Friday at 9 p.m. (ESPNU), at the Robins Center. The Wildcats, at No. 36, are the highest-rated A-10 team in the NCAA NET rankings.

The Spiders have not played since Wednesday’s 80-72 win over visiting Massachusetts.

There was only moderate optimism that GMU would make its Tuesday date at Richmond because the Patriots had missed their previous two games because of COVID issues among GMU players. Mason (7-6) has not yet played an A-10 game because the first two (at VCU on Dec. 30, at Duquesne on Jan. 2) were postponed because of COVID issues in the VCU and Duquesne programs.

Then GMU missed Wednesday's game against Rhode Island and Saturday’s game against Saint Joseph’s because of Patriots’ COVID issues.

Note: Richmond announced it will honor each of its four “super” seniors on separate game days. Nick Sherod will be honored on Jan. 14 (Davidson), Nathan Cayo will be honored on Feb. 4 (St. Bonaventure), Jacob Gilyard will be honored on Feb. 12 (La Salle) and Grant Golden will be honored on Feb. 25 (Saint Louis).
