Buffs Resume Operations, Saturday’s Game On As Scheduled
BOULDER – The University of Colorado men's basketball team resumed operations Thursday and Saturday's home opener against Washington State is on as scheduled for 2 p.m. at the CU Events Center.
"After proper due diligence by our medical staff and in consultation with campus health officials, our men's basketball team has resumed practice today," Colorado Athletic Director Rick George said. "Case investigation and contact tracing of the most recent case within the basketball program, as well as diagnostic PCR testing of all team members on Tuesday and Wednesday and our daily antigen testing cadence, indicated that no further pause in team activities is necessary. We are moving forward with plans to host Washington State on Saturday pending results of our regular testing the rest of this week.
"We will continue daily testing and symptom monitoring of our student-athletes and adherence to guidance from national, state, local and campus public health officials to ensure that we're doing everything we can to protect the health and safety of our student-athletes, opponents, staff, campus and community."
The Buffaloes had temporarily paused operations on Tuesday due to positive cases of COVID-19 within the program, which forced the postponement of their game at Arizona on Wednesday.
Colorado is 2-0, beginning the 2020-21 season last week with a pair of wins at the Little Apple Classic in Manhattan, Kan.
