UConn baseball has canceled its game against Bryant on Tuesday due to COVID protocols within the Bryant program, according to a Sunday announcement.

This will be UConn’s third regular season game canceled due to the COVID-19 virus, after positive tests within the Storrs program led to the cancellation of the final two games of the Georgetown series. None of the canceled games will be rescheduled.

UConn had multiple positive tests before the series against Georgetown began, but continued on with those players in isolation. Head coach Jim Penders received news of another positive COVID test in the middle of the first game of the Saturday doubleheader. At that point, the decision was made by both teams’ doctors to cut the first game short at seven innings and cancel the remaining games of the series, according to Penders.

The Huskies themselves are currently on a 48-hour COVID pause. They will receive their test results on Monday, at which point the decision will be made as to whether the team can resume practice.

UConn (13-11) was riding a seven-game winning streak when the season was put on hold. Their next scheduled game is on Friday, April 16 at Creighton.
