Northern Kentucky men’s basketball back after coronavirus layoff

After an unfortunate set of circumstances struck the Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball team, head coach Darrin Horn gave his players the opportunity to go home for Christmas. 

On Tuesday, Dec. 22, the Norse announced that due to “COVID-related matters within NKU’s Tier 1 personnel,” NKU was pausing all basketball activities and canceling games on Dec. 26 and 27. Since the Norse couldn’t practice anyway, Horn told the players they could quarantine at home.

Only one player did.

“That showed their concern of wanting to do the right thing and not put themselves, their family members or their teammates at risk,” Horn said.

Six weeks into the basketball season, Horn said he’s still learning how to deal with NKU’s scattershot schedule that has been impacted by coronavirus-related cancelations.
