Two more Michigan basketball games in jeopardy due to COVID-19 pause
Michigan may have two more basketball games postponed due to COVID-19.
They’re not going to play against Illinois on Feb. 11 and their game on Feb. 14 against Wisconsin is also up in the air, according to Chris Balas:

At the end of his report, Balas says that their first game back might not be until Feb. 18 (almost two weeks from now).
The Wolverines haven’t played since Jan. 22 when they beat Purdue 70-53. After that game, it was announced that the university was going on a department-wide pause for the next 14 days. During that time, they had to postpone four of their Big Ten conference games, one of them against rival Michigan State.
Here’s the full list of games that they had to postpone:
- Wednesday, Jan. 27: at Penn State
- Saturday, Jan. 30: vs. Indiana
- Wednesday, Feb. 3: at Northwestern
- Wednesday, Feb. 6: vs. Michigan State
As of right now, Michigan is 13-1 on the season and the No. 4 team in the AP Top 25 poll.
