UConn at Xavier game rescheduled for February; Big East working to reschedule Butler at UConn game


STORRS, Conn. (WTNH) — One of the four UConn basketball games canceled due to COVID-19 related issues last week has been rescheduled for February.

The men’s game at Xavier, originally scheduled for Dec. 28, is now scheduled for Friday, Feb. 11 at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati at 7 p.m. The game will be televised.

When that game cancelation was announced last week, Assistant Director of Athletic Communications at UConn Phil Chardis said Head Coach Dan Hurley had tested positive for COVID-19 and was in isolation at home at the time.

The Big East said it is also attempting to find a reschedule date for the Butler at UConn game, originally scheduled for Jan. 1, which was also postponed due to COVID-19 issues.

Two other games canceled last week included the Dec. 29 UConn women’s game vs. Marquette, due to COVID issues within the Golden Eagles’ program, according to the Big East. The UConn at DePaul women’s game, originally scheduled for Dec. 31, was canceled due to COVID issues within the UConn Program.

Last week, the Big East said ticket holders will retain access to their seats for any rescheduled game. If a canceled game is unable to be rescheduled, UConn Athletics will credit the account of a season ticket holder at the end of the season.

Those who purchased a three-game mini-plan or single-game ticket to a canceled game can use their same game tickets for the rescheduled game. If the game is not rescheduled, purchasers have the opportunity to select from available tickets to another home game.
