2021-22 Season

Purdue at Michigan postponed due to COVID-19 protocols

As expected, Michigan’s Tuesday evening game against Purdue has also been postponed due to COVID-19 protocols.

The University of Michigan athletics department announced Sunday (Jan. 9) that its men’s basketball game against Purdue, scheduled for Tuesday (Jan. 11) at 9 p.m., has been postponed due to continued internal COVID-19 protocols within the Wolverines program.

On Friday night (Jan. 7) following medical testing, Michigan fell below the Big Ten Conference roster minimum with fewer than seven scholarship players available, causing its rivalry game with Michigan State on Saturday (Jan. 8) to be postponed. U-M still would fall below that minimum for Tuesday’s contest.

The programs are coordinating with the conference office to reschedule both games.

The U-M Ticket Office has announced tickets for both Michigan State and Purdue will still be valid, if and when the games are rescheduled. Fans with questions may contact the ticket office via email at mtickets@umich.edu.

Michigan’s next game is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 14 at Illinois at State Farm Center in Champaign. That game is set for an 8 p.m. CST tipoff on FS1.

    Hope both of these do get rescheduled because that’s two big home games that would be sorely needed potential wins for the tourney resume.

    Yeah, Michigan absolutely needs these games. Should do everything possible to get them played.

    Looking at our schedule and theirs, neither team would really be able to fit it in the 5 day windows we have open. So unless their are other postponements, it doesn’t seem likely right now.

    1. I’d assume other games will be postponed
    2. You can move other games to make it fit.

    Yep these two games are more important than pretty much every other game on the schedule. Home games against resume builders are imperative
