Siena men's basketball and Union men's hockey have been postponed due to COVID.

The Siena men's basketball team is in the middle of a stretch of what will be at least three canceled or postponed games.

Siena was scheduled to play a New Year’s Eve matinee at Iona. It was a 1 p.m. tip off, but the Saints' program is dealing with COVID-19 positive tests, putting their immediate schedule in jeopardy.

A Tuesday night game earlier in the week was canceled and now the postponements Friday and this coming Sunday.
Siena hasn't played in 20 days. Its next scheduled game is January 7.

The Union men's hockey team was supposed to play Friday afternoon and Saturday against UMass, but both of those games have been called off for health and safety protocol reasons.

The layoff for the Dutchmen will now be longer than three weeks from when they last played a game.

Next on the schedule is a game at Dartmouth on January 7.
