RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Nevada men’s basketball team’s two-game series against Colorado State scheduled for Feb. 20th and 22nd has been postponed as COVID-19 health and safety protocols continue to pause the Wolf Pack’s action.

Nevada’s last series, Feb. 13th and 15th at San Jose State, was also postponed due to positive COVID-19 cases in the Wolf Pack program. The team had already traveled to California before the positive test came in.

The Wolf Pack has not played since Feb. 7th, when it finished off a two-game sweep of then first-place Boise State inside Lawlor Events Center. The week before, Nevada beat UNLV twice at home.

Their next series, and final of the regular season, is scheduled for Feb. 26th and 28th against Utah State. This year, the Mountain West Conference added an extra week before the conference tournament to make up postponed games, which Nevada could do with San Jose State or Colorado State but likely not both. The tournament starts March 10th in Las Vegas.

The conference said in a statement that further updates and schedule adjustments will be announced at a later date.
