The Maryland’s men’s basketball team’s nonconference game against George Mason on Friday has been canceled because of a positive COVID-19 test within the Patriots’ organization, and the Terps quickly found a new opponent.
Maryland announced Wednesday afternoon that they would host Saint Peter’s at 3 p.m. on Friday, replacing their game with George Mason.
George Mason announced Wednesday morning that it was pausing all team activities as a result of a positive test ”detected during routine COVID-19 surveillance testing, which is conducted three times a week in accordance with NCAA guidelines.”
“As a result of the positive test, Mason will not participate in the December 4 contest at Maryland,” the school said in a news release.
It’s the third cancellation for the Terps in a week. Maryland’s game against Monmouth on Dec. 1 was canceled after the Hawks reported a positive test. The Terps quickly scheduled Towson for the same slot but the Tigers on Monday announced the game was canceled because a member of their Tier 1 support staff tested positive.
