COLLEGE BASKETBALL: DEC 06 Women’s - USC at Arizona Getty

COVID-19 issues have halted two more Arizona women’s basketball games, as the program announced late Tuesday night that its road games vs. USC and No. 5 UCLA on Friday and Sunday respectively have been postponed indefinitely.

This comes just two days after Sunday’s home game vs. Colorado was postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the UA program. The Wildcats also have to make up a game against Washington that was scheduled for Jan. 8 in Seattle, though that one was called off because of COVID-19 issues within the UW program.

Arizona head coach Adia Barnes did not divulge many details on her radio show Tuesday, but did say that her program is not on pause and actually got to practice Sunday. What that practice entailed is unclear.

Barnes usually meets with the media Wednesday, but her press conference has been cancelled.

The Wildcats were playing good basketball before the Colorado game got postponed, beating Oregon, Oregon State and Utah to improve to 11-2 overall and 9-2 in the Pac-12, tied with Stanford for first place.

Arizona’s next scheduled game is on Friday, Feb. 5. at Oregon State.
