Two Gonzaga players out due to COVID protocols, game against Auburn still on
FORT MYERS, Florida — Two Gonzaga players will sit out of Friday’s game against Auburn due to COVID-19 protocols.
Sports Information Director Barrett Henderson said “both players did not test positive” when asked by 4 News Now.
The news comes just minutes ahead of tipoff and a day after a member of GU’s travel party tested positive for the virus. On Thursday, the team said two other non-student athletes were also in isolation after coming into contact with the infected person.
The team has not named which two players will be out for Friday’s game.
Editor’s Note: After the game, head coach Mark Few did confirm one player had tested positive.
