List of college basketball teams on pause due to COVID-19

We’ll keep this list updated of the status of teams that aren’t playing because of the coronavirus, as well as when they’re expected to return.

The 2021 college basketball season is happening in fits and starts. Teams that get hit with positive COVID-19 tests are forced to shut down immediately, leading to weeks without basketball while players and team staff recover. Then it’s several days of practice to get back up to speed before playing yet again.

The amount of teams stopping and starting can be hard to keep an eye on, but we’ll attempt to do so as we keep this list updated when things happen. We’ve also added the teams that have opted out or canceled their season entirely.

CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein puts out a list of programs that are paused each morning, but we’ll also add links from other sources as needed, including midday updates via emails from conference offices and other official announcements. We’ll link to where we can find them.

And where we know of a program that’s posted a date when they’ll play again, we note that as well.
