FAMU men's basketball team paused its season for a second time this year due to Covid-19 concerns within the program. On Sunday, the Rattlers won its MEAC and home opener against South Carolina State 70-68 and were schedule to face the Bulldogs again last night, however four hours before tipoff FAMU made the announcement that the game was postponed.
The Rattlers games against North Carolina A&T this coming Saturday and Sunday were also postponed. The team's next scheduled game is Feb. 6 - a span of 26 days - at North Carolina Central.
The Rattlers, along with other NCAA basketball programs, have had their schedule reshuffled several times this season as COVID issues have affected many programs. The Rattlers games against South Florida and Nebraska were canceled because of COVID.
