The Nevada basketball team's ever-changing schedule has changed yet again.

The Wolf Pack's game at San Jose State on March 3 has been canceled as the Spartans deal with COVID-19 issues within their programs. The Nevada-SJSU series was scheduled for earlier this month but was postponed because of a positive Wolf Pack case. It was shifted to a single game as part of the Mountain West's revamped schedule released Wednesday. One day later, it was canceled and will be ruled a no contest with SJSU having three games impacted by COVID-19.

"Due to COVID-19 positive cases within the San Jose State men’s basketball program, the two-game series between the Spartans and Wyoming scheduled for Feb. 25-27 has been canceled," the MW said in a news release. "Additionally, the Nevada at San Jose State contest scheduled for Wednesday, March 3 has also been canceled. These games will not be rescheduled and have been declared no contests."

Nevada has had its last four games postponed due to COVID-19 issues within its program. The Wolf Pack returns to action Friday at Utah State and also plays the Aggies on Sunday to finish the originally scheduled regular season. Nevada is still scheduled to host Colorado State on March 5 as part of the makeup schedule. The Wolf Pack's series against the Rams scheduled for last week was postponed as Nevada went through the quarantine period following at least one positive COVID case. Colorado State is scheduled to host New Mexico on March 3, so it's unlikely the Rams and Wolf Pack face off twice next week.

The latest schedule change means Nevada will end up playing 17 MW games this season rather than 20. It won't face San Jose State, one of the league's worst teams. The MW Tournament is scheduled to start March 10 in Las Vegas.
