WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Sunday’s William & Mary men’s basketball game at Virginia has been postponed.

The move was made after the Cavaliers paused team activities because of COVID-19 issues within the program.

This news comes just a week after the Tribe encountered COVID-19 issues of their own.

On Sunday, Nov. 29, there was a positive COVID-19 case in the Tribe's Tier 1 group (players, coaches, trainers and managers) and the program entered quarantine under the direction of the athletics department's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Virginia Wells.

Following protocol, Tier 1 individuals were tested twice for COVID-19 on Friday and again on Sunday. The results of both tests for all individuals were negative, and the Tier 1 group was cleared to restart team activities on Tuesday following the seven-day quarantine.

The Tribe is currently exploring alternate scheduling options. Their next game is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 16, at Hampton. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. from the HU Convocation Center.
