UNF games at Liberty postponed due to COVID protocols

Dorian James of the University of North Florida looks for an opening to pass last year in a victory over Liberty at UNF Arena.

The Univesity of North Florida has had to postpone a men’s basketball ASUN doubleheader for the second time this season because of the conference’s COVID-19 protocols.

The UNF athletic department announced on Thursday that there would be an indefinite suspension of team activities for the men’s program, including its ASUN road games at Liberty this weekend on Friday and Saturday due to a positive COVID result and contact tracing protocol.

The Ospreys (5-3 in the ASUN) are one game behind Liberty, North Alabama and Bellarmine in the league standings.

The Ospreys had to postpone their opening ASUN series on Jan.1-2 at Stetson because of the COVID-19 protocols.

According to the league policy, a positive test within the UNF players, coaches or staff, or possible exposure to someone who was positive, triggered the protocols. The league does not specify who received a positive test.
