The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:


South Alabama called off its Saturday game with Sun Belt rival Troy because of COVID-19.

The school on Tuesday didn’t say how many players had been affected by the coronavirus, but the team was stopping workouts.

South Alabama, Troy and the league will try to find a makeup date.

“This postponement is unfortunate, however it’s prudent and wise,” South Alabama athletic director Joel Erdmann said. “Our most significant concern is the wellbeing of our student-athletes.”

South Alabama’s next scheduled game isn’t until Oct. 17, when Texas State visits.
