Prior to the high school basketball season can even formally start, there has actually already been a schedule change.

Flagstaff and Coconino were slated to open the season against each other in an earlier-than-normal crosstown video game. That won’t hold true any longer for the boys teams.

KAFF Sports tweeted Friday evening that the game was canceled and later on, according to e-mails from school authorities to the Daily Sun, it was found out that the game was rescheduled for a later date.

Flagstaff Unified School District did not return an ask for comment since publication.

It is unknown at this time if either program had any possible positive cases of COVID-19. Whichever program may have had any positives would need to miss out on two weeks due to the quarantine guidelines.

The Coconino-Flagstaff game that has been canceled was rescheduled for Saturday, Feb. 13.

Coconino is next slated to handle Lee Williams at home on Friday. Flagstaff, meanwhile, is set up to travel to Mingus Friday.

The Flagstaff and Coconino ladies teams will still play as set up at Flagstaff High School at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
