UCLA's game at Pepperdine postponed after positive COVID-19 test within Waves program

The No. 9 UCLA women's basketball team had its game at Pepperdine postponed indefinitely Sunday after a positive COVID-19 test within the Waves program.

The Bruins won their season opener on Friday 98-49 over Cal State Fullerton. That game was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but was moved to Friday after a delay in getting COVID-19 test results for Fullerton.

The Bruins' next scheduled games are on the road Dec. 4 and 6 against Pac-12 opponents Arizona, ranked No. 7, and Arizona State.

UCLA wasn't the only Power 5 conference women's team that had games scheduled for Sunday postponed recently. Fellow Pac-12 school Stanford, ranked No. 2, was scheduled to play Pacific, but that game was postponed Wednesday as the Pacific program went on a 14-day pause after a member of the program tested positive for COVID-19.

Stanford has not announced the status of its games over the next few weeks after an order by Santa Clara County on Saturday that bans contact sports taking place in the county through Dec. 21.

SEC school Missouri on Sunday morning announced the postponement of its afternoon game at Saint Louis after what the school called the "combination of a positive test, subsequent contact tracing and quarantining of individuals within the Tigers' basketball program."

On Thursday, Big 12 school Oklahoma canceled all three of its weekend games at the Crossover Classic in Sioux Falls, South Dakota -- vs. No. 21 Gonzaga, No. 1 South Carolina and South Dakota -- because not enough Sooners players were available due to COVID-19 contact tracing.
