The ever-changing schedule of the Nevada basketball team has changed again.
The game of the wolf pack in San Jose state on March 3 has been canceled as the Spartans address COVID-19 issues in their programs. The Nevada SJSU series was scheduled for earlier this month but has been postponed due to a positive wolf pack case. It has been postponed to a single game as part of Mountain West’s revised schedule released on Wednesday. A day later it was canceled and no competition with SJSU will be decided as three games are affected by COVID-19.
“Due to COVID-19 positive cases in the men’s basketball program in the US state of San Jose, the two-game series between the Spartans and Wyoming planned for February 25-27 has been canceled,” said a press release the MW. “In addition, the competition scheduled for Wednesday, March 3rd in Nevada, San Jose has been canceled. These games will not be postponed or declared non-competitive.”
The last four games in Nevada have been postponed in its program due to COVID-19 issues. The wolf pack returns to the Utah state on Friday and plays against the Aggies on Sunday to end the originally planned regular season. Nevada is slated to host the state of Colorado on March 5th as part of the makeup schedule. The wolf pack against the Rams series planned for last week has been postponed as Nevada went through quarantine after at least one positive COVID case. The state of Colorado is slated to take place in New Mexico on March 3rd, so the Rams and the wolf pack are unlikely to compete twice next week.
The latest change to the schedule means that Nevada will be playing 17 rather than 20 MW games this season. It won’t play against San Jose State, one of the worst teams in the league. The MW tournament is slated to begin in Las Vegas on March 10th.
