The Northern Kentucky men’s basketball program has paused all activities after a positive COVID-19 test was detected within their Tier 1 personnel, which is made up of student-athletes, coaches and essential support staff.

The individual that tested positive is reportedly asymptomatic, according to a statement from Northern Kentucky Athletics.

The team received the positive test result on Friday morning, two days after the Norse played the Ball State Cardinals at BB&T Arena on Wednesday evening.

NKU’s game against the Chattanooga Mocs on Saturday afternoon has been canceled. More information about future games will become available at a later time.
