The TCU Women’s basketball program has canceled its next two home games after reporting positive COVID-19 results within the program.
The Horned Frogs sent a release out on Thursday noting the positive tests. It did not disclose if those that tested positive were players, coaches or team support personnel.
This means that the Horned Frogs will not play their scheduled home games with Incarnate Word on Dec. 19, or the home game with UC Riverside on Dec. 21.
This is the first Big 12 women’s program to announce a COVID-19 pause since the start of the season. But they’re not the only program to cancel games due to COVID in recent days. On Wednesday, UCLA canceled a home game with Alabama State an hour before tip-off due to COVID protocols. The Bruins are not yet on a COVID pause, but CBS reported that seven other men’s programs have gone on COVID pauses this season.
The Horned Frogs (4-4) were coming off an 87-75 victory over then-No. 18 Texas A&M last Sunday, their first win over a ranked opponent this season. In that game, Lauren Heard scored 33 points, earning Big 12 Women’s Player of the Week honors and ESPN national player of the week honors. Aja Holmes had a career-high 22 points.
TCU is next scheduled to host Davidson on Dec. 29 at 6:30 p.m., which would be the Horned Frogs’ final tune-up before they host Kansas on Jan. 2 to open Big 12 play.
