Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Louisville has paused team activities for men's basketball and canceled Friday's game against UNC Greensboro after a positive COVID-19 test emerged from within the program.
The Cardinals announced the program pause on Thursday, but did not specify if the positive test came from a player. Atlantic Coast Conference COVID-19 protocol stipulates that teams must test players three times each week.
"The pause in activities follows a positive test, subsequent quarantining, and contact tracing within the Cardinals' 'Tier 1' individuals, which consists of student-athletes, coaches, team managers and staff," Louisville said in a news release.
"The team is adhering to the outlined protocols within the ACC medical advisory group report."
Cardinals athletic director Vince Tyra said the school will monitor the matter on a "day-to-day" basis.
Louisville has hosted the Wade Houston Tipoff Classic since last week at the KFC Yum! Center. Prairie View A&M left the tournament's bubble earlier this week due to COVID-19 issues. Duquesne and Winthrop also had their game canceled due to COVID-19 issues.
"There has been no determination on how the pause in activities will affect future games past the Dec. 4 UNC Greensboro contest," Louisville said.
The Cardinals (4-0) are scheduled to face Wisconsin at 7:15 p.m. EST on Wednesday in Madison, Wis.
