Monday night's contest between UCLA and visiting Long Beach State was postponed due to COVID-19 protocol issues within the Long Beach State program.

Statements issued by both schools said the game was postponed due to "an abundance of caution." The programs plan to reschedule the game.

Long Beach State said in its statement that it will not be taking a break.

"The Long Beach State program has been cleared to continue basketball activities, and no pause will be taken at this time," the school said.

The Beach is slated to visit Loyola Marymount on Friday in what would be their season opener.

According to reports, a game-day test led to the postponement. It isn't immediately known whether that involved a player.

Bruins coach Mick Cronin told reporters that his team went through its entire pregame routine before learning their home opener was off.

"I can't tell you much," Cronin said. "I can just tell you we got the phone call and that was that."

UCLA (1-1) is scheduled to host Seattle on Thursday.
