The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:
St. John’s has canceled men’s basketball games scheduled for Sunday against Sacred Heart and next Tuesday versus Fordham because of positive COVID-19 tests in both those programs.
Instead, the Red Storm (3-0) will now host Stony Brook on Sunday afternoon at Carnesecca Arena on campus. Fans are not permitted to attend games there through at least the end of December.
The school said Tuesday it was “still in the process of filling the vacancy on its schedule caused by the Fordham cancellation.”
St. John’s was supposed to play at No. 17 Texas Tech on Thursday night in the Big East-Big 12 Battle but scrapped the trip due to coronavirus concerns. Instead, the Red Storm will face BYU (3-1) on Wednesday in “Bubbleville” at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut as part of the Roman Legends Classic.
