FAU vs Western Kentucky Hits Weekend Roadblocks – Games Rescheduled


FAU Press Release:

BOCA RATON – The Florida Atlantic University men’s basketball series with Western Kentucky has been postponed until Sunday and Monday due to the need for additional COVID-19 testing for the Hilltopper program.

On Thursday morning before the team left for Florida, multiple members of the travel party demonstrated symptoms of illness. Those travel party members tested negative for COVID-19 later in the day Thursday.

The entire travel party tested negative for COVID-19 on PCR swab tests on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Out of an abundance of caution, the entire travel party will receive another PCR test Friday. If those results return negative, WKU will travel to Florida on Saturday.

The games between the Hilltoppers and the Owls are now scheduled for Noon ET on Sunday and 6 p.m. ET Monday at FAU Arena. The games will still be broadcast on ESPN+.
