Two Temple University men’s basketball games scheduled this week are postponed due to “COVID-19 issues” within the Eastern Carolina University program, Temple Athletics announced today.

The Owls were scheduled to play ECU on Feb. 11 at the Liacouras Center and on Feb. 13 in Greenville, North Carolina.

The Owls will now travel to Cincinnati, Ohio, to face the Cincinnati Bearcats on Friday at 7 p.m., according to the press release. For the Owls and Bearcats, this will make up for a Jan. 20 game between the teams that was postponed on Jan. 19 because of “positive COVID-19 tests and the ensuing contact-tracing within Cincinnati’s program.”
