TUCSON (KVOA) -- 10th ranked Arizona Women's Basketball's game on Sunday vs. Colorado has been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19 protocols within the UA program.

The game was to be played at 1 p.m. at McKale Center. It's the first game Arizona Athletics has had to postpone as a result of virus issues of its own.

Washington had to postpone their January 8 game against UA in Seattle due to COVID-19.

The Wildcats beat Utah 66-54 on Friday and currently hold a half-game lead over Stanford for first place in the Pac-12 Conference.

UA's scheduled game with Colorado is the 2nd game the Wildcats have had postponed due to COVID-19

At the moment this appears to be just a single-game situation and not a program pause. The team's next scheduled contest is set for Friday, Jan. 29 at USC. If the Wildcats were to have to go on a pause it would wipe out that road trip to Los Angeles.

The UA men are scheduled to play a game at McKale Center on Monday against rival ASU and that game will go on without issue.

UA basketball sports information director Nate Wiechers tells News 4 Tucson the court area is cleaned and disinfected according to COVID-19 protocols set forth by the department's medical team, the NCAA and in accordance with local health guidelines.
