Not looking good for the game on the 30th. Jaylen Clark on youtube said they're in total lockdown and not practicing and they hope to be done 28th or 29th which would mean no practices or any team stuff in 2 weeks so they clearly wouldn't play on the 30th against Arizona.
I wonder if the UofA can get a win due to forfeit?

the assumption is the schools will try to find an alternate date to play but I think yes it IS possible that UA could wind up with a forfeit. Note USC is in a similar situation although not clear if they are in total lockdown yet. If they are they could have to change the game too or forfeit.

Apparently UA women cancelled a game due to Covid but the mens team seems good so far they're supposed to play Tennessee soon.

Arizona has a large advantage here the rules in ARizona are much less strict than in California, both UCLA and USC would still be open and playing in arizona but in California and LA County they have much stricter quarantine rules so they both had to shut down. The hope is both LA schools get it out of the way now so they don't have to deal with it later on after they come out of their bubble.

Was looking forward to that game but seems unlikely to happen on schedule now

FYI the folks on BRO seem to think UCLA will play Arizona on the 30th unless the Pac 12 bends Arizona's arm into rescheduling that and USC.

Sounds like practice should start again on the 27th and BRO guys suspect UA won't agree to postpone the game unless the pac 12 makes them. The primary reason being UA wants 2 games against ranked teams on their schedule for the tournament seed and obviously they would be concerned the games won't be rescheduled because maybe Arizona would have a Covid issue themselves later on.

Fun one to watch. Almost dug yourselves out of a huge hole/adversity to steal a road W.

Lucky to even be in the game towards the end. That officiating was awful. Multiple neutral media people are saying the same thing, so I’m not just being a homer

Late in the game Mathurin was trying to foul to stop the clock and make Tenn shoot FT's and the ref wouldn't call the foul until he fouled REALLY hard. Then it almost looked like the ref was going to call a T on him. Just terrible.

The TO on Kerr was a joke. The entire starting five almost fouled out of the game. It was like the refs had money on the game.

Yeah the officiating was terrible but tubelis playing poorly didn’t help. Not Arizona’s best game.
