Georgia’s game with Columbus State cancelled
ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia’s basketball game with Columbus State this evening has been cancelled due to positive COVID-19 tests within the Cougars’ team.
The Bulldogs were slated to play Columbus State at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening but learned mid-afternoon about positive COVID-19 results within the Cougars’ program.
“This is obviously a situation unlike any other I’ve had to deal with in my 31 seasons of coaching college basketball,” head coach Tom Crean said. “I said just yesterday how this season already was a surreal experience all around. This is truly that. We’re extremely disappointed for our players and for our fans. We were so excited to play today. To all our fans, bear with us. It’s going to be this kind of year in college basketball. We certainly hope for the best for Columbus State’s program, both health wise and during the season.“
Georgia is now scheduled to begin its 2020-21 season on Sunday when the Bulldogs host Florida A&M at 2:00 p.m. That game was only finalized yesterday after Gardner-Webb, Georgia’s initial opponent for Sunday, discovered positive COVID-19 tests within its team.
