Aaaaaaaaand it looks like basketball is off again, for a while:
The Tennessee at Vanderbilt men’s basketball game of Jan. 12 has been postponed due to a combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Vanderbilt basketball program.https://t.co/5Ap27KOX66— Southeastern Conference (@SEC) January 12, 2021
The SEC had previously scrambled to schedule a game between Vanderbilt and Tennessee for Tuesday night after both teams’ scheduled games were called off due to COVID issues at, respectively, Missouri and South Carolina (the latter of which has played five games this season, by the way.) But now, Vanderbilt appears to have its own COVID issues and won’t be playing Tennessee tonight, and we can only assume the Commodores won’t be playing basketball at all for a couple of weeks, though that’s hardly official at this point.
Assuming two weeks as the timetable for return, Vanderbilt would also lose a road game at Tennessee on Saturday and home games against Texas A&M and Arkansas, before returning for a trip to Florida on January 27.
Anyway, when does baseball season start and will it start before the basketball team returns?
