HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Wahine basketball team announced on Saturday that they will pause all team activities temporarily, due to a positive COVID-19 test within the program.

The team announced the change via their social media accounts, as a result their two-game series against UC Riverside — set for January 8th and 9th at SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center — has been canceled.

The positive individual has not been identified due to privacy policies and it was not specified if the individual was a player or a member of the support staff.

This the second cancellation of the season for the Wahine, after their Big West conference series opener against Cal Poly was canceled last week due to COVID-related issues.

UH’s next scheduled series is set for January 15th and 16th against Cal State Bakersfield in California.
