UCF men's basketball players take instruction from their coaches on Oct. 22. The Knights' scheduled tip off on Saturday against Oklahoma has been canceled due to a positive COVID-19 test within the Oklahoma basketball program.

UCF men’s basketball season-opener on Saturday against Oklahoma has been postponed, per Jeff Goodman.

The announcement came after positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing within the Sooners basketball program. Oklahoma was scheduled to open its season up against UTSA at 8 p.m. on Wednesday night.

Oklahoma announced via twitter that the men’s basketball program has paused organized team activities. It has not been released how many or which Oklahoma basketball players tested positive.
