RIO GRANDE VALLEY – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced on Friday that the men’s basketball team will visit Texas Southern on Saturday at 7 p.m., replacing the previous scheduled home games against Grand Canyon due to a positive COVID-19 test of Tier 1 personnel within the Grand Canyon men’s basketball program.
UTRGV had been scheduled to host Grand Canyon on Friday and Saturday as part of the Bert Ogden Series, presented by the City of Edinburg.
Fans that purchased single-game tickets online or with a credit card will automatically receive a refund on their card. Refunds may take up to 30 days to process. Fans that purchased tickets at the box office with cash can come to the Bert Ogden Arena box office to get their refunds starting Monday. The Bert Ogden Arena box office is open Monday through Friday from 9-to-6 p.m. Fans with questions regarding their single-game ticket refunds should contact Bert Ogden Arena directly at (956) 56-ARENA.
The games against Grand Canyon are not currently set to be made up but could be if the two teams find themselves with a common off week in the future. Conference standings and seeding for the 2021 Hercules Tires WAC Basketball Tournament will be based on a formula that considers both winning percentage and the percentage of games played.
At the end of the season, UTRGV basketball season ticket holders will have the option to either donate the balance paid for canceled games that are not replaced or rescheduled to the V Club, receive a credit that is good for 2021-22 basketball season tickets, or receive a refund.
Questions regarding season tickets should be directed to the UTRGV Ticket Sales and Operations team of Carlos Munoz and Tiffany Ochoa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
