INDIANAPOLIS/DAYTON – Northern Kentucky and Wright State announced on Sunday that their men’s basketball game scheduled for Monday, Jan. 10 has been postponed due to COVID-19 implications within Northern Kentucky’s tier one individuals.
The two teams will attempt to reschedule the game, if possible. Updates to the schedule will be announced at a later date.
The Horizon League Council on Thursday updated the League’s rescheduling policy to note that if a game between travel partners is canceled due to COVID-19, that the game will be rescheduled, if possible.
If the game cannot be rescheduled, Northern Kentucky sought to deem the missed competition a no contest since it is unable to field a team due to continued breakthrough cases among vaccinated student-athletes. Commissioner Julie Roe Lach granted the requested relief noting that it satisfied the extraordinary standard.
The announcement follows positive COVID-19 tests within Northern Kentucky’s tier I individuals.
