The Michigan State women's basketball game against Northwestern on Tuesday has been cancelled due COVID-19 issues in the Wildcats program, according to a social media post from both teams. As of now the game will be postponed as the two programs work to reschedule.

Northwestern has been struggling with COVID-19 issues since Dec. 21 when they had to cancel their game against Oregon and then postpone a Big Ten matchup against Minnesota on New Year's Eve.

The already shorthanded Spartans also had their first COVID-19 scare of the season just in time for their matchup against Nebraska last Thursday. They took down the Cornhuskers despite only nine players, having lost freshman guard DeeDee Hagemann and graduate student guard Laurel Jacqmain to COVID-19 protocols. At this time it is uncertain when they will rejoin the team.

MSU's next matchup will now be at home against Purdue. In order to fight the surge, MSU athletics will require vaccine cards or a proof of a negative test within 72 hours in order to attend events.
