College basketball hit hard by COVID cancellations: Michigan, Providence, San Diego State latest paused teams

Though the onslaught of COVID-19 pauses across men’s basketball have slowed in recent days — and dipped significantly from the barrage of halts that arrived the week before Christmas — there are still teams being sidelined by multiple players testing positive for the coronavirus. 

On Tuesday, Providence’s game at Creighton was postponed hours before tip-off due to PC not having enough players to play the game. And at San Diego State, a pause is in effect for the 10-3 Aztecs, who were scheduled to play New Mexico on Saturday. 

Michigan is also currently unable to play due to an outbreak. 

Since mid-December’s omicron-fueled outbreak across American sports, more than 140 men’s college basketball programs have gone on COVID pause. As of Tuesday evening, the number had dropped in a week’s time from more than 60 to more than 20. Between cancellations and postponements, more than 200 games have been impacted. A complete list of schools on halt can be see below, in addition to previous programs that paused in December or early January.
