Another Ohio State men’s basketball game has been canceled.

Monday morning, Ohio State’s athletic department announced that Tuesday’s contest against New Orleans has been canceled because of continued COVID-19 concerns. It’s the third-straight game the Buckeyes have had to call off because of virus issues.

Ohio State also had to cancel games against Kentucky and Tennessee-Martin before the holiday. The Buckeyes are currently 8-2 on the season.

“Our guys are progressing through the COVID return to play protocols well, but we just don’t have the numbers or readiness to play a game yet,” said head coach Chris Holtmann in a statement. “Player safety as it relates to COVID and as they return to play after a significant time off, will always be a top priority.”

Ohio State is still planning to play Sunday’s game against Nebraska.

Because of the COVID-19 concerns, the Buckeyes have not played since a Dec. 11 matchup against Wisconsin. Ohio State won that game 73-55 and is 2-0 in B1G play.
