The school will reevaluate in 48 hours whether the Wildcats can resume practicing.
Kentucky said the pause was “due to a combination of positive testing, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the program.”
The Wildcats, off to one of the worst starts in program history, have lost four of their last five games and sit at 5-10 overall, 4-4 in the SEC.
The Longhorns have their own COVID issues. Head coach Shaka Smart tested positive earlier in the week. Smart, Courtney Ramey, Jericho Sims and Brock Cunningham all missed Tuesday’s home loss to Oklahoma.
