RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Richmond is pausing all men’s basketball activities in response to the results of Sunday’s COVID-19 testing and contact tracing in the Spiders’ program.
The decision comes two days after No. 22 Saint Louis, which had traveled to Richmond for a Friday night game against the Spiders, instead opted to return home without elaboration, but without playing because of concerns raised by its medical staff.
The Spiders (10-4, 4-2 Atlantic 10) have now paused three times for COVID-related concerns. They paused for COVID reasons in early December, missing approximately a week of basketball activity. They experienced a two-week COVID pause in mid-January.
Richmond says it’s Tuesday night game against George Moason has been postponed and no decisions have been made related to future games for the Spiders.
