Georgia State cancels hoops game because of COVID, injuries
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia State has canceled its men's basketball game Wednesday against Tennessee State because of COVID-19 protocols and injuries.
The Panthers (4-2) lost 94-59 last Saturday at Rhode Island with a squad that included only seven scholarship players and nine players overall.
One player was out after testing positive for COVID-19, others were unable to travel because of contract tracing and the roster was further depleted by injuries.
Georgia State announced that Wednesday's home game against Tennessee State was called off “out of an abundance of caution” and wouldn't be rescheduled.
The Panthers are expected to return to action Saturday at Mercer. Tennessee State (1-5) is scheduled to travel to Chicago State for its next game that same day.
