Detroit Mercy women's basketball game vs. Cleveland deemed a 'no-contest' due to COVID-19

·1 min read

Detroit Mercy's women's basketball game at Cleveland State, scheduled for Thursday, has been canceled.

The announcement comes on the heels of COVID-19 problems within both programs. UDM (0-13, 0-6) and Cleveland State each asked the Horizon League to label the game a no-contest since neither school had the numbers to participate.

The requests from both programs for a no-contest was granted by Horizon League commissioner Julie Roe Lach.

The no-contest is the latest in a string of games that have been canceled for UDM. Games against Milwaukee and Green Bay have been considered forfeits and dropped the team's conference record to 0-6. The next scheduled game for UDM is at Purdue Fort Wayne on Saturday.
