Memphis’ health concerns cancels game at No. 16 USF women

January 17, 2021 GMT

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis Tigers have canceled their Sunday game at No. 16 South Florida, choosing not to play because of health and safety concerns.

Memphis (2-7) announced the decision Saturday.

American Athletic Conference policy gives the final decision to play specific games — or not — with the individual teams. Conference officials are working to determine how the game will be classified.

This is the sixth Memphis women’s game this season affected by health and safety concerns. The Tigers had all games against SMU canceled with games against Southern Illinois on Nov. 29, UCF on Dec. 30 and Wichita State on Jan. 13 postponed.
