UD men's final CAA regular-season series is canceled


NEWARK — After going almost a month without playing a game, the Delaware men’s basketball team’s last chance to play in the regular season has now been canceled, too.

The Colonial Athletic Association announced this morning that the Blue Hens’ two-game set with Towson, slated for this weekend, has been canceled due to positive COVID-19 tests within the Tigers’ program.

At the moment, that leaves only the CAA Tournament, which starts on March 6 at James Madison, on Delaware’s schedule.

The Hens (7-7), who have won three in a row, haven’t played a game since Jan. 31. They’ve had games canceled both because of positive results in other programs and because of positive results in Delaware’s program.

The CAA has been especially hard hit by the pandemic this winter. As of Feb. 14, only 44 of 75 scheduled conference games had been played.

Three of the four two-game sets scheduled for this coming weekend have been called off.
