·1 min read

Ohio State basketball’s game against Kentucky on Saturday has been canceled because of concerns with positive COVID-19 results. The news came via a statement from the program on Thursday.

OSU was to travel to Las Vegas to take part again in the four-team CBS Sports Classic. North Carolina and UCLA were to play in the other matchup in the T-Mobile Arena in a series that has been going on since 2014. The game between the Wildcats and Buckeyes will not be rescheduled.

“The safety and well-being of the student-athletes, coaches, staff and Ohio State community is the highest priority,” the statement from OSU read. “All team related activities have been suspended and the players and staff will continue to be tested according to Ohio State protocols in consultation with the Big Ten Conference.”

This is a developing story and we’ll stay on top of any further disruptions that occur.
