Purdue Fort Wayne at Michigan canceled due to coronavirus issues

Michigan’s home game tonight against Purdue Fort Wayne has been called off due to COVID-19 issues in the Purdue Fort Wayne program.

Here’s the official statement:

The University of Michigan and Purdue Fort Wayne athletic departments announced today (Tuesday, Dec. 21), the men’s basketball game against the Mastodons scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 21, has been canceled due to internal COVID-19 protocols within the Purdue Fort Wayne program.

“My first concern is for coach Coffman and his players,” said David and Meredith Kaplan U-M head men’s basketball coach Juwan Howard. “I have said many times that we are living in a new world and we need to continue to be safe and diligent with taking care of each other. While we are disappointed we can’t play, we just want to make sure everyone is, and feels, safe and healthy.”

Fans who purchased single-game tickets will receive a full refund. Further information will be provided by the ticket office as soon as possible. Fans with questions may contact the U-M Ticket Office via email at mtickets@umich.edu.

Michigan’s next game is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 30, 2021, at Central Florida. The contest is set for a 7 p.m. tip-off on ESPN2.

The Wolverines are scheduled to be in action next on December 30th at Central Florida.

    With Christmas and everything else, I can’t really see a make up game getting inserted right now.

    Well hopefully I can get ESPNU on my laptop to see Livers and Walton at 2pm in the G League showcase. So I don’t have to go through basketball withdrawal.

    EDIT: Zavier Simpson and DJ Wilson too

    Sorry but my hamstrings are really tight, so if we’re putting together a squad to get out there this evening I’m a scratch
