B1G women's basketball game postponed due to inauguration
A Thursday women’s basketball game in the B1G has been postponed out of an abundance of caution because of the presidential inauguration in Washington D.C.
Tuesday evening, Iowa women’s basketball team announced it would not be making the trip to College Park for the Thursday matchup against Maryland. Tip-off had been set for 5 p.m. ET.
In the release, Iowa says that the decision was supported by the B1G.
“The women’s basketball game between the University of Iowa and University of Maryland, scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 21 at 4 p.m. (CT) in College Park, Maryland has been postponed,” the statement said.
“Out of caution due to Wednesday’s inauguration activities in Washington, D.C., Iowa made the decision to not travel to Maryland, which was supported by the Big Ten Conference.”
No make-up date has been set at this time, but the statement says that the two schools will work together to find a time to reschedule.
Iowa is 9-3 this season with a 5-3 record in B1G play. Maryland is currently ranked No. 7 nationally with an 11-1 record overall and a 7-0 mark in B1G play.
