No. 1 Gonzaga vs No. 2 Baylor scrapped over positive tests

The big basketball matchup between No. 1 Gonzaga and No. 2 Baylor is off

In a joint statement less than 90 minutes before tip-off, the schools said one player and one nonplayer in the Gonzaga travel party tested positive. The unidentified player did not play in Wednesday’s game against West Virginia.

Both teams decided mutually to abandon the game after consultation with the Indiana State Health Commissioner, the Marion County Public Health Director and both team physicians. The game was scheduled to be broadcast by CBS.

Coaches Mark Few of Gonzaga and Scott Drew of Baylor said they were working on a makeup date, but it was unclear when or where that might happen.
