The Ole Miss men’s basketball team has been forced to push back the start of this year’s season after testing and contact tracing revealed a number of positive COVID-19 cases.
Ole Miss announced on Monday that the 2020 Justin Reed Ole Miss Classic this week (Nov. 25-27) and the Memphis game (Dec. 5) are canceled due to issues with the virus.
All team activities have been suspended until Dec. 7. The student-athletes and staff affected are taking appropriate safety measures in accordance with university protocol.
Ole Miss will open its 2020-21 schedule on Dec. 12, as they welcome UNCW into the Pavilion.
