UMass Bursts Bubble On CT Start To Season


The UMass men's basketball team is pausing all team activities following a positive coronavirus test result. 

The team didn't specify if it was a player, coach or staff member. 

Officials only have described the person with the virus as a "Tier One Member of the Team."

Because of the pause, UMass will not play in the upcoming "Bubbleville" event at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.

The Athletic Department is expected to announce a non conference schedule within the next few days.
