Two other Georgetown men’s basketball games – against Providence and Marquette – have been postponed after the Hoyas reported a positive COVID-19 test.
Georgetown was scheduled to play at Providence on Saturday and host Marquette on Jan.20. This will result in three consecutive deferrals for Georgetown and five in total this season. The Hoyas were supposed to host DePaul on Wednesday.
Coach Patrick Ewing’s team are 3-8 this season and have lost their last five games.
Georgia State has postponed its third straight game due to COVID-19.
The Panthers halted all team activities for a week after several positive tests within the program, including athletes, coaches and support staff. This forced the postponement of two games against Troy, his Sun Belt Conference rival.
Georgia State (7-2) was scheduled to play back-to-back games against Coastal Carolina this weekend, but Friday’s game was called off. The teams are still ready to play on Saturday.
Both programs are looking at possible makeup dates.
