Michigan basketball vs. Purdue postponed due to COVID-19 issues with Wolverines

·1 min read

With COVID-19 issues continuing to affect the program, Michigan basketball has postponed its game against Purdue scheduled for Tuesday at Crisler Center.

A news release issued by the athletic department said the results from a round of testing U-M underwent Friday evening would preclude the Wolverines from meeting the Big Ten's minimum requirement of seven available scholarship players against the Boilermakers.

WHAT HAPPENED?: Why Michigan postponed its game vs. Michigan State seemingly overnight

This marks the second postponement in quick succession for Michigan, which was scheduled to face rival Michigan State on Saturday in Ann Arbor. That game was waived off after members of the U-M program began exhibiting symptoms during workouts Friday at the facility, which prompted an additional round of PCR testing that produced an unknown number of positive results.

Michigan's next game is scheduled for 9 p.m. Friday at Illinois.
