And OrSU also makes the P12 less viable:

Quote:
Oregon State’s women’s basketball program is temporarily stopping team activities after the school announced a confirmed COVID-19 positive case Sunday.

The Beavers’ game Monday at Washington is postponed indefinitely.


..and they most likely passed it on to Wazzu yesterday.

so does Oregon go ahead and play at Wazzu tomorrow?

I wish they would give us more information. Obviously if it is a player, the Oregon game should be postponed. If it's staff, maybe it's ok to play...It just seems like playing with fire/tempting fate to play a team that's just been exposed.

Cal Baptist(8-0) game at UC San Diego(0-0) was called at half time as there was a medical protocol issue with a CBU player or member of the team group.

It was UC San Diego's first D1 game. UC San Diego is coached by Tara VanDerveer's sister Heidi.

The game was declared a no contest. UCSD led 28-25 at the half.

Cal Baptist is the team, that last season, lost to Stanford by 5 points, in a Vancouver Canada event.

Almost a third of the games listed on ESPN’s schedule page are postponed or cancelled today. Is this worth it?

How many of the remaining games are makeups between opponents that wouldn't otherwise have been scheduled and which will result in meaningless blowouts?

The Duke women’s basketball team has been on pause since Dec. 16 because of two positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing within the program’s travel party. The Blue Devils (3-1) postponed games against Miami, N.C. State and UNC Wilmington. The team’s next scheduled contest was against Louisville on Thursday.

Crying or Very sad I suppose it means more players actually ended up with it after the two initial positives. I noticed in the Duke game I watched that Kara was one of the most diligent coach in terms of keeping her mask on. Most of them have their masks hanging around their chins half the time or yank them off every time they yell something or often in the huddle.

I was wondering if it meant some players opted out, reducing availability, after the team’s recent “pause”.

Good for Kara, the team, and Coach K for speaking out.

I should have read the press release - decision of the players. Good for them and the university for supporting.

Quote:

The Duke women's basketball program will not play the remainder of the 2020-21 season due to health and safety concerns stemming from COVID-19.

"The student-athletes on the Duke women's basketball team have made the difficult decision to conclude their current season due to safety concerns," said Michael Schoenfeld, Vice President for Public Affairs & Government Relations and Chief Communications Officer for Duke University. "We support their decision, as we have supported the choices made by all student-athletes at Duke during this unprecedented time. Duke will maintain our current schedule of competition in other sports and will continue to observe our rigorous health and safety protocols, which include daily testing for all student-athletes and are based on guidance from leading medical experts."

The Blue Devils had played four contests in first year head coach Kara Lawson's Duke debut, before pausing basketball related activities on Dec. 16 due to COVID-19 positive cases and precautionary contact tracing measures among individuals within the travel party.

Big West openers for Hawaii vs. Cal Poly postponed. Wahine would've been on the road, Warriors (men) would have hosted. Mustangs have Covid issues.

I'm sure Duke WBB won't be the last Power-5 program to opt out. Them opting out makes it 'easier' now for others to do so. Too, many programs are about to see (more) covid cases within their program if student-athletes & staff members were in fact allowed to travel for Christmas.

Honestly, I'm a little shocked at how many games HAVE been played already. And given how the numbers are expected to shoot up after this holiday, it doesn't look good for a full season.

OrSU has postponed the Jan 1 and 3 games against UCLA and USC. This is an extension of the postponement of the UW game last week.

Syracuse cancels game against Morgan State: https://twitter.com/CuseWBB/status/1343248025494429696

They seem to think their next scheduled game, on 12/31, is going to happen, but, um... I could be wrong but I don't think the timing is possible?

The SEC opener between South Carolina and Mississippi - which was to be held Thursday December 31st at Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, SC - has been postponed due to covid-19 concerns.

According to the reports, the concerns involve Mississippi and not South Carolina. The Gamecock's next scheduled game is Jan. 4th against Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL.....

and this is why we do not book four-state road trips involving at least two flights during a gods-bedamned pandemic

I devoutly hope everyone involved with the squad comes through with no more than a mild cough and a short but finite bout of wondering what things smell like, but I have, like, a negative amount of surprise about this.

The Big East has played about 60% of their games so far this season with 4 teams playing as many as 8 games and two others 7 games. And then there's Georgetown who has played one game so far this season. There's talk of a possible BE bubble later in the season with possible locations in Chicago, Indianapolis, Uncasville or DC. They'll decide later if they need this or not:

Kelly Williams, mother of Jade Williams (Duke WBB) claiming that Duke recently played a team that did not COVID test daily. After the competition is when the positive outbreaks occurred with Duke Women’s basketball. Duke asked NCAA to mandate daily testing. NCAA supposedly said no. Ergo Duke pulled plug.
