The March Madness Indy bubble experiment has suffered its first setback:
Yesterday’s first-round game between No. 7 seed Oregon and No. 10 seed VCU in Indianapolis was declared a no-contest due to what the Rams said were multiple positive COVID-19 tests within their program.
Oregon automatically advanced to the second round, where it will play No. 2 seed Iowa on Monday.
The Rams received multiple positive tests within the past 48 hours, coach Mike Rhoades said in a statement. The team didn’t specify if the positive tests came from players or other team personnel. It flew home late Saturday night, with those who tested positive traveling separately.
