The COVID scheduling shuffle continues as BYU Basketball’s game with San Francisco was postponed and one with Pacific will now be played.
San Francisco announced Tues. evening that its next three games, including the one scheduled at the Marriott Center Saturday, will be postponed due to to positive cases from COVID-19 testing and related contact tracing.
BYU announced Wed. evening that they would play Pacific instead. A tweet read, “The game between BYU and Pacific scheduled for Feb. 8 (we think they meant Feb. 18) has been moved up to Saturday at the Marriott Center.”

BYU was originally scheduled to face USF on Saturday, but the Dons announced they are pausing team activities due to COVID-19.

It looks like the game will have the same time and TV slot that it originally did — A 4 p.m. MT tip on CBS Sports Network. BYU was only scheduled to play Pacific once this season, but we’ll see how that all pans out with the frequent scheduling changes.
Pacific (5-3) has had 12 games on its schedule this season that have either been canceled or postponed. BYU has had 2.
BYU will be coming in to the Pacific game off of a tough loss at Pepperdine Wed., while Pacific last played and lost (95-49) at Gonzaga on Jan. 23.
Props, as always, to Mr. Holmoe and to the basketball staff and WCC for getting things moved around so quickly and efficiently.
