With COVID-19 cases again on the rise it was only a matter of time before it had yet another impact on New Mexico sports.

That impact came Wednesday afternoon with the Mountain West Conference postponed next week’s men’s basketball game between nationally ranked Colorado State and the University of New Mexico. The game was scheduled for Tuesday in The Pit and was to be the conference opener for both teams.

The MWC cited virus-related concerns within the Colorado State program for the reason behind Wednesday’s decision. One of just five undefeated teams left in the country following Arizona’s loss on Thursday to Tennessee, the Rams (10-0) are ranked No. 21 this week.
