Tuesday’s scheduled men’s basketball game between UC Irvine and Buffalo, which was to have taken place at Buffalo, has been postponed over COVID-19 concerns, the UC Irvine Athletics Department announced Monday.

With COVID cases on the rise locally and nationally, the school cited “an abundance of caution for the health and safety of the student-athletes.”

“Efforts will be made by both schools to agree upon a future date,” the school said.

UC Irvine’s next scheduled game is Dec. 30, when it begins Big West Conference play in the Bren Events Center against CSUN.
