SYRACUSE, NY — Syracuse University’s Department of Athletics today announced the next two men’s basketball games are postponed due to COVID protocols. These include the Saturday, Dec. 18 game against Lehigh and the Cornell game on Tuesday, Dec. 21. Athletics is currently re-evaluating the schedule to determine if these games can be made up this season; more information will be shared later.
“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges for intercollegiate athletics all over the country,” says John Wildhack, director of athletics. “Our top priority is safeguarding the health and well-being of our student-athletes, athletics staff, fans and the campus and Central New York communities. While it is disappointing to have to postpone any athletic event, this is the right decision given the increasingly difficult public health landscape.”
The women’s basketball game scheduled for 11 a.m. tomorrow against the University of Maryland, Baltimore County will continue as planned. Orange fans are encouraged to attend to cheer on the team, which is looking to extend its winning streak to six.
