The women’s basketball team continues to halt all basketball-related activities following the most recent COVID-19 testing and contact tracing procedures, K-State Athletics announced on Monday.

Kansas State is unable to roster the Big 12 Conference’s threshold of six available players in order to play.

Because of problems related to COVID-19, the conference is postponing the Wildcats’ upcoming games at Baylor on Jan. 10 and against TCU on Jan. 14. The Big 12 will work with all three programs to possibly reschedule the games later this season.

This testing marks the second-straight week the program postponed games. The team previously postponed games against Oklahoma and West Virginia at the start of the new calendar year. K-State’s last played 15 days ago, a 62-52 loss to No. 17 Texas.

K-State’s next game is scheduled for Jan. 17 against Oklahoma State.

The Wildcats are currently 5-4 on the year and 0-2 in conference play. K-State’s game against Oklahoma State is scheduled for a 1 p.m. tip-off in Bramlage Coliseum. That game will be broadcasted on Big 12 Now on ESPN+ with radio coverage through the K-State Sports Network.
