At this rate, it’s more newsworthy when the Arizona Wildcats have a game that is not canceled.

The school announced Sunday that Monday afternoon’s home matchup against San Diego, a game that was just added to the schedule a few days ago, has been canceled due to “a COVID-related concern in the USD program.”

This marks the six different game Arizona has had postponed or canceled so far this season due to a COVID issue, each time coming from the opponent. San Diego had been a last-minute addition to replace California Baptist, who was supposed to play the Wildcats at McKale Center last Wednesday but the game was called off about three hours before tip-off.

Arizona (5-1) is still scheduled to host Montana on Tuesday, which for now is its final nonconference game. Based on the way the Pac-12 schedule is set up, the only opportunities to add another game would come during the two weeks when the UA faces ASU in mid-January and early March.

UA coach Sean Miller may have been hinting at the possibility of a cancellation on Saturday night when, during his Zoom interview following the 78-75 loss to Stanford, he said “I’m excited about playing the games, hopefully we’ll be able to play both games.”
