The VCU men’s basketball team’s scheduled game against Davidson on Saturday afternoon was postponed Saturday morning due to a COVID-19 issue within the Rams’ program.
VCU was set to host the Wildcats at 2:30 p.m., in the team’s second game of Atlantic 10 league play.
But the program will now have to pause due to COVID-19 protocols. There have been no decisions on the Rams’ upcoming games. They’re scheduled to play at George Mason on Wednesday.
This is the first time this season VCU has had to stop activity due to COVID-19 within its own program. The Rams (8-2, 1-0 A-10) were able to play a full slate of nine nonconference games, and their A-10 opener at Saint Joseph’s on Wednesday.
VCU tests a minimum of three times per week, follow- ing the NCAA’s direction.
It’s the second postponement since A-10 play began in earnest this week. Wednesday’s game between Saint Louis and Duquesne was postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test within the Saint Louis program.
According to VCU, the program will resume activity once all personnel clear its COVID-19 protocols.
The pause comes as the Rams are in the midst of a six-game winning streak. They’ve won games against Mount St. Mary’s, North Carolina A&T, Old Dominion, Western Carolina, James Madison and Saint Joseph’s by an average of 19.8 points.
