Xavier’s trip to Butler is pushed back one day to Saturday

Xavier Musketeers head coach Travis Steele yells out a play in the first half of the NCAA men's basketball game between the Xavier Musketeers and the Seton Hall Pirates on Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2020 at Xavier University in Cincinnati.

The Big East Conference announced Thursday that Friday's scheduled game between Xavier and Butler at Hinkle Fieldhouse has been pushed back one day to Saturday at 5:30 p.m. "due to additional COVID related testing precautions." 

The move comes after an official who worked Tuesday's game between Butler and UConn reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 following the game. 

It will allow for additional testing to ensure the Bulldogs and Musketeers can play in a safe environment. 

Xavier head coach Travis Steele has a media session on Thursday afternoon to discuss the matchup.
