UCLA Women’s Basketball Postpones Games Due To COVID

Amid an ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, UCLA postponed two more conference games and competitions against Arizona State and No. 4 Arizona pushed back. The games were originally scheduled for December 31st and January 2nd, respectively. The announcement came two days after UCLA and USC rescheduled two rivalry games.

Due to three cancellations at the end of the non-conference season, UCLA has 27 days between its last game and its next scheduled competition in Utah on January 7th. Their next home game is not scheduled for January 14th against Washington, which is nearly six weeks after the last time the Bruins played against San Jose State on December 1st at the Pauley Pavilion.

UCLA last played on December 11th, losing to Connecticut in Newark, NJ. The Bruins then had to cancel home games against Texas Southern, Ohio State and Cal State Bakersfield as the program paused all team activities due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

The original UCLA conference opener against rival USC was postponed from December 28th to January 20th on Wednesday. This game at the Pauley Pavilion will be followed by another rivalry matchup at the Galen Center on January 23rd.
