The Arizona Wildcats have found a replacement for their latest canceled game, adding San Diego to the schedule in place of California Baptist.

Arizona will host the Toreros on Monday, Dec. 21 at 3 p.m. MST at McKale Center, with the game being shown on the Pac-12 Network.

That means the Wildcats will play three games in a four-day span beginning with Saturday’s trip to Santa Cruz, Calif. to face Stanford at 5 p.m. MST. Arizona was already scheduled to host Montana on Tuesday, Dec. 22 at 5 p.m. MST.

The Cal Baptist game, which was supposed to be played on Wednesday, was call off less than three hours before tip-off due to a positive COVID-19 test within the Lancers’ program.

San Diego is 1-2 this season, having beat Cal Poly at home on Wednesday after starting out with losses at UCLA and at home to Nevada. The Wildcats are 2-0 all-time against the Toreros, last beating them in 2004.
