Fresno State Basketball To Pause For Two Weeks
Bulldogs season is delayed a bit.
COVID-19 causing issues in Fresno
Just a few days after Colorado State was hit with COVID issues, Now the Fresno State men’s basketball team has been hit with similar issues.
The school announced that all activities will be paused for two weeks due to an undisclosed number of positive cases within the program. All games through December 13 will be either postponed or canceled.
The pause due to the test results will put a damper on four upcoming games- albeit zero conference games. The Bulldogs were set to face UC Riverside, Pepperdine, Cal State Northridge, and Cal Poly. Whether or not these games will actually be rescheduled will be determined at a later time.

Again, we knew this was a possibility. The fact that it’s barely been a week and there’s already two different programs on pause is extremely concerning- and will cause all kinds of headaches and problems for the conference.
Everybody knew this would be an issue, and the Mountain West did everything in their part to avoid it by scheduling two-game series against the same schools to reduce travel and limit exposure as much as possible.
With cases rising all across the US- and the City of Fresno specifically dropping back recently into the purple tier — this is a very fluid situation that should be worth monitoring.
