KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Vols Basketball season-opening game against UT Martin has been canceled due to COVID-19.

The Vols were set to play on Wednesday at Thompson-Boling Arena, but according to The University of Tennessee, positive COVID-19 tests at UT Martin caused them to back out of the game.

Officials said they are searching for a new opponent to play next week.

This news comes after the Vols returned to practice Friday even as the program was identified as a cluster.
