AUSTIN, Texas — While many college hoops fans were looking forward to Saturday's Texas-Kentucky game, on Friday morning, Kentucky's program went on a 48-hour hold due to a combination of positive COVID-19 tests, contact tracing and quarantines.
The game against the Wildcats is the fourth Longhorns game either postponed or canceled thanks to COVID-19.
Though this was a big game, it wasn't a conference game, so the teams will not reschedule.
The Texas program has had its own issues with COVID-19.
Longhorns head coach Shaka Smart was out for Wednesday’s loss to Oklahoma after he tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday.
The Longhorns have been down three players for each of their past two basketball games due to COVID-19 protocols.
Next up for UT is a Tuesday night home game against Baylor.
