Syracuse has 5 players out due to COVID-19 contact tracing

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Quincy Guerrier had 23 points and 13 rebounds to help Syracuse spoil Niagara's season opener with a 75-45 win on Thursday night.

Syracuse announced less than a couple hours before the game that one of its players tested positive for COVID-19. The school said in a release that the positive result stemmed from testing that occurred last week. Syracuse did not reveal which player had tested positive and indicated that, because of the new positive test, additional players would miss the game on Thursday night because of contact tracing.

Coach Jim Boeheim said afterward the positive was a walk-on and clarified that five players, including his son Buddy, will have to sit out because of contact tracing. Both exposures occurred off-campus and his son will be out 14 days, Boeheim said.
