Tulane University has temporarily suspended its men’s basketball program due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the program, as of Dec. 11.

Tulane’s Athletics Department said there are multiple positive cases of COVID-19 within the program, and that “no organized team activities will take place during the program’s shutdown.”

The program’s suspension comes just days after the omicron variant of COVID-19 was detected at Tulane.

Tulane Athletics announced that the team’s upcoming road game against Texas A&M University on Dec. 14 and a home matchup against Grambling State University scheduled for Dec. 18 have been canceled. 

The team expects to return to action at home on Dec. 21 against the University of New Orleans with the matchup scheduled to tipoff at 7 p.m. on ESPN+. The Green Wave currently stands with a 3-6 record
