NEW BRITAIN â€“ The CCSU menâ€™s basketball team wonâ€™t be able to get its last game in before the holiday break.
Tuesdayâ€™s game against Binghamton was canceled, the school announced on Tuesday morning. The Blue Devils were scheduled to visit the Bearcats for a 4 p.m. tip, in what would have been their final non-conference game of the season. A road game against Fordham this past Saturday was also canceled, meaning the team will have played three non-conference tilts this season, all losses against UConn, Army and Hartford.
The cancellation was not related to a covid case within the team, and CCSU is still practicing before the holidays. Binghamtonâ€™s next game, a Sunday afternoon matchup at UMBC, is still on as scheduled.
The Blue Devilsâ€™ last game came on Dec. 16, their best defensive performance of the season in a 78-59 victory over St. Francis Brooklyn at home. Their next game will be on the road on Jan. 7 against Bryant, leaving a three-week gap in between games.
CCSU wonâ€™t be back home until a Jan. 21 matchup with Mount St. Maryâ€™s. The teamâ€™s record for the calendar year ends at 2-5 overall, and 2-2 in conference play.
