COVID-19 has hit another high-profile school and this time it's the University up the road. The Louisville Men's Basketball Team is pausing all team-related activities indefinitely after a positive COVID-19 test result came from within the program, according to a statement sent out by the University and UofL Vice-President/Director of Athletics Vince Tyra. Due to the pause, Louisville's game scheduled for Dec. 4 against UNC Greensboro has been canceled. The announcement of the decision came late Thursday night. https://twitter.com/GoCards/status/1334706236978307073 Louisville is hardly the first team to put a halt on basketball activities due to COVID reasons and they surely won't be the last. No decision regarding future games has been made yet, either. The Cardinals are currently scheduled to play next on Dec. 9 against No. 4 Wisconsin on the road and then again on Dec. 16 against N.C. State at home. "We are adhering to the ACC and university protocols, and will monitor the matter day-to-day," Tyra said in the statement. The positive test was discovered on Thursday during routine testing and included a "Tier 1" individual within the program, someone who is considered one of a student-athlete, coach, team manager, or staff member. Earlier in the week, Prairie View A&M dropped out of Louisville's "bubble" that they are currently hosting at the KFC Yum! Center, which forced an immediate schedule revision. The Cards recently beat Prairie View by a final score of 86-64 back on Nov. 29.
