Iowa vs. Northwestern basketball game to be postponed, per report
Iowa was originally scheduled to host Northwestern in a Wednesday night matchup. Unfortunately, that game will reportedly be postponed due to issues within the Wildcat roster.
According to David Eickholt with 247 Sports, Wednesday’s game will be postponed due to Northwestern not being able to field enough players for the game. The Wildcats are reportedly dealing with COVID right now in addition to injury issues within the program.
Northwestern has already been utilizing an 8-man rotation in recent games and has dropped back-to-back matchups against Rutgers and Michigan after a 3-1 start in B1G play. Meanwhile, the Hawkeyes are one of the hottest teams in the conference, rattling off 4 straight wins after riding a 3-game losing streak.
We will see if the game will be able to get made up down the road.
Sources: Iowa’s game against Northwestern will be postponed. The Wildcats are dealing with injury issues along with COVID. Don’t have the minimum player requirement.
Expecting to hear a formal announcement later today.
