UT-Iowa St. game postponed
AUSTIN — The Texas at Iowa State game scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed in accordance with the Big 12 Conference men’s basketball interruption guidelines, the conference announced Sunday.
Iowa State on Friday paused all team activities due to COVID-19 protocols within the program, which led to a postponement of Saturday’s scheduled game against Kansas. No. 4 Texas is also dealing with COVID-19 issues of its own.
The Longhorns held out freshman Greg Brown, sophomore Kai Jones and junior Brock Cunningham from Saturday’s home game against Kansas State. Texas (11-2, 5-1 Big 12) still cruised to an 82-67 win without those three available.
The Big 12 will work with the institutions to reschedule the game. The conference is also working to reschedule the Texas at Baylor game that was scheduled for Dec. 13 but canceled due to COVID-19 protocols within the Bears’ program.
Texas is still set to face TCU at 5 p.m. Saturday in Fort Worth.

Louisville was originally slated to play N.C. State on Sunday, but the Wolfpack are on pause right now because of the coronavirus. The ACC reworked the schedule to setup the game against the Seminoles (4-2, 3-2), who played for the first time since New Year’s Eve due to COVID-19 issues.
