Michigan-Michigan State basketball game postponed due to COVID-19 concerns
Saturday’s in-state rivalry matchup between Michigan and No. 10 Michigan State has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Both schools released a statement on the situation early Saturday morning.
The COVID-19 concerns have come from within the Michigan basketball program, per a release. The game was scheduled to be played Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor.
“On Friday night following medical testing, Michigan fell below the Big Ten Conference roster minimum, with fewer that seven scholarship players available,” the release stated.
“The programs will coordinate with the Big Ten Conference office to reschedule the game.”
Michigan State currently sits at 13-2 on the season and is 4-0 in B1G play. The Spartans have been hot recently, winning their last 8 games. Tom Izzo’s squad is one of just two teams (Illinois) still undefeated in the conference.
Michigan is 7-6 this season with a 1-2 mark against conference opponents. The Wolverines have lost their last two games.
