Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders cancel two more men's basketball games

Middle Tennessee has canceled its next two games in what had been scheduled as a home-and-home set with Bellarmine because of positive COVID-19 test results and contact tracing in the Blue Raiders' program.

The Blue Raiders (2-4) had been set to visit Bellarmine on Saturday with Bellarmine visiting Middle Tennessee on Monday night. But both games now have been canceled with Middle Tennessee having positive COVID-19 test results and contact tracing affect the program for the second time this season.

Middle Tennessee had its season opener against Akron canceled due to COVID-19 issues inside the Zips' program. That cut Middle Tennessee's slate at the Gulf Coast Showcase from three games to two.

The Blue Raiders now are schedule to open Conference USA play Jan. 1 at Florida Atlantic for their next game.
