2nd men's basketball game canceled this week due to COVID-19 issues within MSU program

January 14, 2021

The Michigan State men's basketball (8-4) game against the Indiana Hoosiers (8-5) has been postponed.

The game was originally scheduled for 12 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 17 at the Breslin Center.

The announcement comes from the MSU Athletic Department only hours after the game against the No. 5 Iowa Hawkeyes was postponed. The decision was made based on continued COVID-19 issues within the Spartans' program.

There has been no reschedule date given for the matchup either. The schools will work with the conference to identify further options, the release said. MSU athletics said that there have been no decisions on games beyond Sunday, Jan. 17.

The Spartans are set to host No. 14 Illinois on Jan. 23 at the Breslin Center. This game will be broadcast on Fox and a tipoff time has yet to be decided.

The news comes after MSU Head Coach Tom Izzo announced in a press conference Wednesday that his son, Steven Izzo and center Mady Sissoko tested positive for COVID-19 early in the week. The two players are out of the rotation but can return after 17 days.
