The Houston Cougars Men's Basketball program has paused all team-related activities due to recent positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing, Vice President for Athletics Chris Pezman announced Tuesday morning.

The Cougars were scheduled to play two games inside the Fertitta Center this week in Sam Houston State (7 p.m., Wednesday) and Rice (1 p.m., Saturday). Both of those games are now postponed.
