CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Virginia women’s basketball team will not play another game this year.

The Cavaliers have canceled the remainder of their schedule, citing health and safety concerns.

UVA has only played five games this season.

They’ve had six canceled or postponed, due to COVID-19 issues.

The Wahoos haven’t played a game in over a month, while following strict protocols.

Injuries have also left Virginia with a depleted roster.

UVA head coach Tina Thompson says, “The decision to end our season mid-stream comes with great difficulty. As difficult as it is to end our season in this manner, it is a necessary one. The health and safety of our student-athletes will always be the number one priority.”

The Cavaliers finish the season with a record of 0-5 overall, and 0-2 in the ACC.
