Shiga has announced that its game against Mikawa this weekend at Wing Arena has been postponed.
The Seahorses have decided to cancel the game due to an outbreak within the team that has resulted in them not meeting the minimum eight-player requirement of the B.League.
“Mikawa has decided to cancel the match because the players and staff are positive for the new coronavirus infection and the number of players who can enter does not meet the 8 players specified in the B League rules,” said the team’s statement.
Kiefer Ravena and Shiga are in the midst of a three-game slide for a 9-17 slate in the west.
Mikawa, meanwhile, is 14-12 in the same conference.
Up next for Shiga is San-En on January 22 and 23.
Also postponed due to health and safety protocols are Thirdy Ravena and San-En’s game versus Hokkaido, Matt Aquino and Shinshu’s tilt against Hiroshima, the showdown pitting Bobby Ray Parks’ Nagoya and Javi Gomez de Liano’s Ibaraki, and Kobe Paras and Niigata taking on Osaka.
Dwight Ramos and Toyama’s contest against Akita this weekend at the Grouses’ homecourt is still on as of publishing.
Over at B2, Kemark Carino and Aomori’s game against Kumamoto is still on.
