Lion Men’s Basketball game at North Texas canceled
Texas A&M University-Commerce has announced the cancellation of the men’s basketball exhibition game at the University of North Texas due to CoVID-19 concerns within the program.
The Lions and Mean Green planned to meet Tuesday (Dec 1) night in Denton, but we canceled due to a positive test within the Lions’ program. The team has begun appropriate isolation and quarantine protocols.
“The health and safety of our student-athletes is the top priority of Lion Athletics, especially during a global pandemic. While the protocols implemented by our sports medicine staff and campus health professionals have created a safe environment for our student-athletes, we understand that there will be bumps in the road to a completed season,” said A&M-Commerce director of athletics Tim McMurray.
The Lions schedule starts the 2020-21 season on Sunday (Dec 13), at home vs. Western New Mexico.
