Several players are expected to be out of tonight’s game between the Syracuse University and Niagara.
“One member of the Syracuse Men’s Basketball team has tested positive for COVID-19,” the team wrote in a statement. “The positive result stems from our testing that occurred last week. Consistent with Onondaga County Health Department guidelines, that individual, and the team, are taking all necessary precautions. This includes other members of the team sitting out tonight’s game as the result of our contact tracing protocol.”
The team will not announce specifically who tested positive.
