Loyola-Chicago pauses basketball activities

Loyola-Chicago paused men’s basketball activities due to a COVID-19 outbreak, the program said Monday.

Loyola did not disclose the number of individuals directly connected to the coronavirus outbreak but shared the positive tests were among “student-athletes, coaches, managers and staff.”

A Final Four team in 2018, the Ramblers are preparing to play a Missouri Valley Conference-only schedule this season.

Loyola is scheduled to begin the season on Dec. 30 against Drake.
