USF’s women’s basketball program announced Sunday afternoon that its game against Stetson on Dec. 13 has been canceled due to COVID-19-related issues within the Hatters’ program.

“Unfortunately, our game with Stetson is off,” coach Jose Fernandez said in a team-issued statement. “I have unbelievable respect for (Stetson head coach) Coach (Lynn) Bria and her program. Safe return for their staff and players.”
