The Ohio State University men’s basketball game against Alabama A&M has been canceled.

The game, scheduled for Saturday evening in Columbus, was canceled after Alabama A&M shared results of its most recent COVID-19 testing, the athletic department stated on social media.

“The decision was made out of an abundance of caution and with the welfare of the student-athletes,” OSU posted on Twitter.

The game is still on for the Buckeyes’ football game against Michigan State on Saturday.
