LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) — The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns men’s basketball season opener against Loyola of New Orleans has been canceled due to positive COVID-19 tests among the Wolf Pack basketball program, according to a press release from UL.

The game was scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 28 at the Cajundome. The season will now start on Wednesday, Dec. 2 against New Orleans at Lakefront Arena at 7 p.m. UL’s home opener against LSU Alexandria on Tuesday, Dec. 8 is also still on track.

The Cajundome will operate at a significantly reduced capacity for the 2020-21 season (unless state COVID-19 policy changes during the season). This will allow for fans and university students to be accommodated this season. The Department of Athletics will quickly communicate any schedule adjustments or changes to attendance protocols through its social media channels and RaginCajuns.com.
