DePaul called off two more men’s basketball games because of positive COVID-19 tests, pushing back the start of the season until at least next week.
The Blue Demons were scheduled to play at Providence on Thursday and Butler on Monday. But with team activities paused, those Big East games were postponed and no makeup dates were announced. DePaul is scheduled to host Connecticut on Dec. 23.
“We will continue to test both during and after any quarantine periods and the latest test results we have received show these protocols are working,” DePaul athletic director DeWayne Peevy said in a statement. “Accordingly, the men’s basketball season will continue to remain on pause under guidance from our medical staff.”
DePaul has canceled or postponed 10 games. The Blue Demons were scheduled to open Nov. 25 against Western Illinois at home.
