Howard Men’s Basketball Season Screeches to a Halt

WASHINGTON – The Howard Men’s Basketball team has paused all activities due to positive COVID-19 test results among the program’s “Tier 1” personnel, which consists of student-athletes, coaches, medical staff, equipment staff, game day operators, and officials.

The team will remain in quarantine and will not return to basketball activities until cleared pursuant to CDC and Howard University protocols.

As a result, this weekend’s (Jan. 9-10) scheduled games with Delaware State have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.

“Howard University places the safety of our student-athletes first and foremost. We will continue to conduct robust testing and require our student-athletes to observe safety and social distancing guidelines,” Howard University said in a statement.
