After having its past two games postponed, the Penn State men’s basketball program has paused team activities. The university released tonight that the decision was made “due to positive COVID-19 results among its Tier 1 personnel.”

From PSU’s release:

Due to the pause, the Nittany Lions’ home games against Michigan (Jan. 9) and Rutgers (Jan. 12) have been postponed. The institutions will work with the Big Ten Conference to identify rescheduling options. No determination has been made on how the pause may impact scheduled games beyond Jan. 12.

The Nittany Lions are 3-4 overall and 0-3 in the Big Ten. They had their home game Sunday against Wisconsin postponed, and they were to play Wednesday night at Ohio State, but that game also was postponed.

The Lions’ next scheduled game, following these two postponed today, is slated for Jan. 17 at Purdue.

Penn State’s football team was able to play all nine of its scheduled games this season with no postponements. The basketball team has not been so fortunate, though. The Lions haven’t played since Dec. 30 at Indiana before having four games postponed so far.
