Four hours before the start of game time, Louisiana announced that their men's basketball game tonight against Little Rock at the Cajundome was canceled due to COVID-19 problems within the Trojans' program.

According to ragincajuns.com, Little Rock did not meet the threshold of seven players and one coach available for the game as a part of the Sun Belt's COVID-19 protocols.

For now, their winning streak and undefeated conference record will stay intact. Their next game starts a two-game road trip to Texas when they travel to face the UT-Arlington Mavericks on Thursday, Jan. 13 at 7:00 p.m. The Mavericks are 7-7 overall and 3-0 in Sun Belt play.

That game between the Cajuns and UT-Arlington is set to be an early-season conference battle of the last two undefeated Sun Belt squads. After that, they're scheduled to play Texas State on Saturday, Jan. 15 at 4:00 p.m.

Texas State is 9-4 this season but 0-1 in the Sun Belt Conference. They started conference play with a 78-63 loss at home to Troy, but each of their last three games have been canceled due to COVID-19 issues in their program.

Hopefully, Louisiana will be able to play both of their games next week and continue their strong start against Sun Belt opponents.
