Saturday's game between No. 1 Gonzaga and No. 2 Baylor has been postponed because of COVID-19 issues.

“Following surveillance testing for COVID-19, one student-athlete and one non-student-athlete of the Gonzaga men’s basketball travel party produced positive results," Baylor Basketball said in a statement.

As a result, Gonzaga and Baylor have mutually decided today's game will not be played.

Both teams will attempt to reschedule the game for another date.

Joint statement from Baylor head coach Scott Drew and Gonzaga head coach Mark Few:

"We’re disappointed to not be able to play one of the most-anticipated games of the season, but we are following the advice of public health officials. When we decided to play during a pandemic, our priorities were protecting the health and safety of student-athletes and following public health guidelines, and we’re proud of how both programs have held true to those promises. There are much greater issues in this world than not being able to play a basketball game, so we’re going to continue praying for everyone who has been affected by this pandemic."
