BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — WKU Hilltopper Basketball’s road series at Florida Atlantic has been postponed until Sunday and Monday due to additional COVID-19 testing for the Hilltopper program.

On Thursday morning before the team’s scheduled departure for Florida, multiple members of the travel party presented with symptoms of illness. Those travel party members subsequently tested negative for COVID-19 later in the day Thursday.

The entire travel party tested negative for COVID-19 on PCR swab tests on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Out of an abundance of caution, the entire travel party will receive another PCR test Friday. If those results return negative, WKU will travel to Florida on Saturday.

The games between the Hilltoppers and the Owls are now scheduled for 11 a.m. CT Sunday and 5 p.m. CT Monday in Boca Raton. The games will still be broadcast on ESPN+.
