RIO GRANDE VALLEY – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced on Saturday that the women’s basketball home games against New Mexico State, previously scheduled for Jan. 29 and 30 will not be played due to a positive COVID-19 test of Tier 1 personnel within the New Mexico State women’s basketball program.
The games with New Mexico State are not currently set to be made up but could be if the two teams find themselves with a common off week in the future. Conference standings and seeding for the 2021 Hercules Tires WAC Basketball Tournament will be based on a formula that takes into account both winning percentage and the percentage of games played.
UTRGV and the WAC are currently exploring the possibility of replacing the games on the schedule.
At the end of the season, UTRGV basketball season ticket holders will have the option to either donate the balance paid for canceled games that are not replaced or rescheduled to the V Club, receive a credit that is good for 2021-22 basketball season tickets, or receive a refund.
Questions regarding tickets should be directed to the UTRGV Ticket Sales and Operations team of Carlos Munoz and Tiffany Ochoa at email@example.com.
