According to reports from Matt Norlander of CBS Sports and Chris Anderson of EerSports.com, and now confirmed by West Virginia University, Tuesday’s West Virginia at Baylor basketball game has been postponed due to COVID-19 protocols and positive cases within the WVU program.

Less than two hours before this announcement, Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins spoke to the media on earlier on Monday saying that everyone was playing but they had just been tested earlier Monday morning.

No word on when the game at Baylor will be rescheduled.

This continues a tumultuous couple of weeks in West Virginia basketball that began with Oscar Tshiebwe abruptly leaving the program (and landing at Kentucky). West Virginia is 1-2 in it’s last three games, losing to Oklahoma, beating Oklahoma State and then dropping a heartbreaker on a last-second shot Saturday against Texas in the Coliseum.

Barring further setback the Mountaineers will return to action on Saturday, January 16 when former Pitt coach Jamie Dixon brings TCU to the Coliseum.
