EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon men's basketball's season opener against Eastern Washington scheduled for Wednesday, November 25, in Eugene has been postponed. 

The decision was made due to concerns about EWU having enough scholarship players available after both positive Covid-19 cases and additional student-athletes under contact tracing protocols within the program. 

“We were very much looking forward to opening our season on Wednesday, so it’s disappointing for our fans and student-athletes from that standpoint,” said Oregon coach Dana Altman. “But the top priority is student-athlete safety, and we certainly respect and understand Eastern’s decision and wish all involved a quick recovery.”

The game may be rescheduled at a later date.
