TUCSON, Arizona — Pima Athletics will resume competition on Tuesday for the first time since the baseball team played last March 10th.

For safety reasons, there will be no one in attendance when both basketball teams host Cochise College.

"Student-athletes have to answer the questionnaire about how they’re feeling," said athletic director Jim Monaco. "They have to get their temperature checked. Unless they’re on the floor, they’re masked. We set up the gym today so there is distance for the benches like everyone else is doing. They’re six feet by six feet, and all spread out."

Fall sports were moved to the spring, and the soccer teams will play at night under the lights.

Monaco says he hopes to have Aztec games streamed in a few weeks.
