Florida’s Saturday matchup against Texas A&M was postponed due to positive COVID-19 cases and contact tracing in the Aggies’ basketball program.

Texas A&M currently has an undisclosed number of players in quarantine and said it’s abiding by the SEC’s COVID-19 protocols, according to a press release. 

Saturday’s cancellation marks the third straight game Florida lost from its schedule. Florida had trips to LSU Saturday and Tennessee Wednesday before they were postponed due to positive COVID-19 cases and contact tracing within the Gators’ facility.

Florida will look to get back on track on a roadtrip to Arkansas Tuesday after a 72-66 upset loss to South Carolina Feb. 3. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
