Wright State Women’s Basketball has canceled its next three games due to positive cases of COVID-19 in the program’s tier-one individuals.

Games canceled

The games canceled are versus Marshall, an out-of-conference match on Nov. 30, as well as Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne and Cleveland State, both Horizon League matches at home.

“The games are canceled and will not be rescheduled,” a press release from Assistant Athletic Director Nick Philips said on Nov. 29. 

The game against Marshall will be declared a no-contest.

However, the Horizon League council has declared that the league contests will be an automatic forfeit, pushing the Raiders from a 0-2 start in league play to 0-4.

The losses will also push their 0-5 start to 0-7, the worst start for the program since the 2007-2008 season, where the program lost their first five games under coach Bridget Williams.

Future games

At this time, their next game will take place on the road on Dec. 12 at Abilene Christian, but if cases persist more games in the future will be canceled. Their next home contest is scheduled for three days later, on Dec. 15 against the Lake Erie Storm.
