Saturday afternoon’s game pitting No. 18 Tennessee against Memphis was canceled due to COVID-19 issues within the Tigers’ program.

Both teams’ official Twitter accounts announced the cancellation of the game.

The Volunteers (8-2) and Memphis (6-4) were scheduled to play at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

The Volunteers elected to hold a 5-on-5 scrimmage instead. They will return to action on Wednesday against No. 8 Arizona in Knoxville, Tenn.
