Arizona women’s basketball will have to wait even longer to return to the court.
The UA announced Thursday that Friday’s road game at Oregon State has been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19 issues within the Beavers’ program.
It’s the fourth straight game the Wildcats have had to postpone due to COVID-19, though the previous three were because of issues with the UA program.
Arizona has not played since Jan. 22 when it beat Utah at home. The Wildcats were on a three-game winning streak before this string of postponements.
UA head coach Adia Barnes said Wednesday that the Wildcats had one case of COVID-19 within their program and contract tracing forced several other people to quarantine, including her. But the person who tested positive is doing well now and all the players are healthy.
Their next scheduled game isn’t until Monday at No. 12 Oregon, a game that is supposed to air on ESPN2.
