NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Southeastern Conference has postponed tonight’s basketball game between in-state rivals No. 10 Tennessee and Vanderbilt because of a combination of positive coronavirus tests, contact tracing and quarantining within the Commodores’ program. The game was a late addition to the schedule because of COVID-19 issues at Missouri, where Vanderbilt had been scheduled to play, and at South Carolina, Tennessee’s originally scheduled opponent. Vanderbilt is still set to visit Tennessee on Saturday night as originally scheduled.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The Big 12 has announced that West Virginia has postponed its next two men’s basketball home games due to COVID-19 concerns.
