While the University of Washington men’s basketball team has been able to avoid the COVID-19 outbreak on its roster, the Husky women’s team has not been so lucky.
The school announced on Friday that UW women had withdrawn from games at UCLA on Friday, January 15, and USC on Sunday, January 17, due to virus problems in the program.
This comes after Jody Wynn’s team postponed this weekend’s home games against Arizona on Friday and Arizona State on Sunday.
The Huskies and Pac-12 will see if some or all of these games can be rescheduled.
Previously, the UW football team played only four out of seven soccer matches and had to withdraw from Pac-12 championship matches and possible bowl matches due to COVID-19 issues.
The Wynn basketball team was 4-5 and last played on January 3 in Utah, losing 84-63. Earlier, the Husky match at Oregon State on December 21 was postponed due to the pandemic.
On Wednesday, UW’s athletics department reported that it had three active cases of COVID-19 among all its athletes, not specifying which sport or individual the name of the individual was. The school tested 568 athletes. Those who show positive results are in quarantine and undergo treatment procedures.
