FORT COLLINS, Colo. — While the Colorado State men’s basketball team likely won’t be able to play its Mountain West opener, the Rams won’t be hit with a forfeit.

The conference revised its cancellation policy Wednesday.
If a team can’t play due to COVID-19 issues “an effort will be made to reschedule the game if possible,” read part of the Mountain West’s revised policy. “If a game cannot be played and cannot be rescheduled, it shall be canceled and considered a no contest.”
The policy was first set in August and said if a “contest cannot be played as scheduled due to a team’s inability to participate related to COVID-19 issues, the game shall be considered a forfeit for that team and will not be rescheduled.”
The CSU men’s and women’s basketball teams are currently both on pause due to COVID-19 cases within the team.
CSU’s next scheduled game is a Jan. 4 home contest against Air Force. That would mean CSU could go more than three weeks between games, with the Rams last playing Dec. 11.
