The men’s basketball game between Iowa and Northwestern that was scheduled for Wednesday in Iowa City will not be played due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols within the Northwestern program.

The two schools will work with the Big Ten on rescheduling options.

Iowa (12-6, 4-3) returns to action on Saturday at Ohio State. Tipoff is slated for 1:01 p.m. (CT) at Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
