The University of Kentucky Men's Basketball team has now been put on a 48-hour pause, including the cancellation of Saturday's contest against Texas.

The announcement comes after a number of people close to the team tested positive for COVID-19.

This is the first cancellation of the season for the Wildcats.

UK ticket holders will receive an email later, about any additional changes to the team's schedule.

The program has yet to determine if there will be any make-up dates for this weekend's contest.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
