BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Southern men’s basketball team’s trip to Spokane, Wash. to face No. 1 Gonzaga has been canceled after the Bulldogs shut down basketball activities due to COVID-19 issues in the program.

CBSSports.com reported Gonzaga has paused its hoops activities through Dec. 14, which means the Jags won’t face the Zags on Thursday, Dec. 10.

No. 1 Gonzaga and No. 2 Baylor were scheduled to play each other Saturday, Dec. 5 but the game was canceled after a Gonzaga player and another member of its traveling party for the Baylor game tested positive for COVID-19, the report stated. The program decided Sunday to stop its basketball activities until Monday, Dec. 14.

Southern announced a change to its schedule on Monday, Dec. 7. The Jags will travel to Fayetteville, Ark. on Wednesday, Dec. 9 to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
