UConn’s Hurley says delay to season is in play
UConn coach Dan Hurley is considering delaying the start of his team’s season after a player’s positive coronavirus test last week forced the program to suspend all activities for two weeks.
Hurley said Thursday that he hopes the team will be able to get back to practice on Nov. 19 and play its first games on Nov. 25 and Nov. 27.
But contracts for those games have not been signed. Hurley said ramping up practice after two weeks off will be difficult and he won’t put his team’s health in jeopardy to open the season this month.
UConn has not identified who tested positive for the coronavirus and Hurley would not go into specifics about the testing of the team and the current health of players.
