The UConn men’s basketball team has resumed practicing one week after pausing team activities after positive tests for COVID-19. The team is modifying its quarantine to be able to practice as a team until the 14-day quarantine window is over next week.

“After seven days of a full quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test result, the UConn men’s basketball team was able to return to practice on Sunday. The Huskies will now enter a modified quarantine that will allow them to practice as a team, but with additional risk mitigation strategies in place (such as masking) for the full 14 days. No additional positive results have emerged after daily testing of the team and staff. However, players, coaches, and staff are required to wear masks at all times during practice until the completion of the full 14-day quarantine,” the school said in a statement.

UConn also added that its next scheduled game is on Sunday, Dec. 20 against Creighton at Gampel Pavilion, which would be the Huskies’ Big East opener after having their first three Big East games postponed. Since the Huskies’ first pause in early-November, UConn has played just three games and practiced only 11 times.
