Villanova men's basketball has paused all team activities after head coach Jay Wright tested positive for COVID-19, the program announced Sunday.
Wright is experiencing mild symptoms and is in isolation, per guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"Our players have been very diligent and disciplined with all of the COVID protocols," Wright said in a team statement. "Unfortunately, we have had two staff members test positive. I am one of them. My symptoms are mild, and we remain connected as a team and staff by phone and Zoom. I am grateful to our Team Physician, Dr. Mike Duncan, who has worked tirelessly to help guide us safely through this."
The No. 3 Wildcats' game against No. 22 Xavier on Saturday has been postponed.
The Big East Conference has not determined when the game will be rescheduled or whether Villanova's pause will affect other games.
