Long Beach State men’s basketball halts games for two weeks after positive COVID-19 test

The Long Beach State men’s basketball program will enter an immediate two-week pause following a positive coronavirus test, prompting cancellations of home games against UC San Diego today and Saturday and games at UC Santa Barbara next Friday and Saturday.

This is the second time this season the Beach has had to pause team activities for two weeks because of a positive coronavirus test. Long Beach State canceled four games and postponed a fifth following a positive coronavirus test Dec. 15.

Games on Jan. 15 and Jan. 16 were also canceled related to COVID-19 protocols.
