Couple items breaking here … first, Wednesday’s Temple-Villanova game is off due to positive COVID cases in Temple’s program, source tells CBS Sports.— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) December 28, 2021
The game, scheduled to be played at Finneran Pavilion and to be broadcast on FS1, was set to be Villanova’s final game of the 2021 calendar year as well as its last non-conference game of the 2022 regular season.
Jay Wright was also trying to make it eight-straight wins against the Owls and claim an outright Big 5 title for the seventh time in eight seasons.
Neither the Villanova nor Temple program has confirmed that the game is off. A determination for a forfeit, re-scheduling, or cancelation has not been determined.
Villanova has noted:
The two programs will look to re-schedule the game on another date. If the game is re-scheduled, tickets already purchased will be honored on the new date.
