COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State has canceled its men's basketball game against Alabama A&M tomorrow, the athletic department confirmed.

Ohio State said they decided to cancel the game due after learning of recent COVID-19 testing results within Alabama A&M's program.

"The decision was made out of an abundance of caution and with the welfare of the student-athletes, coaches and event staff in mind," Associate Athlete Director Jerry Emig said in a statement.

The Buckeyes are 3-0 on the season and are currently ranked No. 23 in the AP rankings.

Ohio State's next game is against Notre Dame on Dec. 8 in South Bend.
