COLUMBIA, Mo. — After pausing team activities Friday because of a positive COVID-19 test result and contact tracing/isolation, the Missouri men's basketball team will have two games to make up.

The Tigers' game Saturday against LSU was postponed, and Saturday night the program announced Tuesday's game against Vanderbilt would also be postponed. Missouri plans to resume team activities Wednesday provided the program tests out of the Southeastern Conference's coronavirus protocols with negative test results.

The Tigers (7-2, 1-2 SEC) are currently scheduled to play next at noon Saturday at Texas A&M.

Make-up dates for the two games, both home games for Missouri, have not yet been announced by the league office. Because South Carolina has also currently paused team activities, Vanderbilt will host Tennessee on Tuesday instead.


COVID-19 protocols also affected the Missouri women's schedule Sunday.

Due to a combination of positive tests, contact tracing and quarantining of individuals within the Auburn women's basketball program, Missouri's scheduled game at Auburn game was postponed.

There was no immediate announcement of when the game would be rescheduled. It's the second straight game Missouri has had postponed after Thursday's scheduled contest against Vanderbilt was called off.

Missouri (4-3, 0-2) is now scheduled to play this Thursday at Mississippi.
