The Iowa-Indiana women’s basketball scheduled to be played Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena has been postponed because of COVID-19 issues within the Hoosier program, Hawkeye Athletics announced Tuesday.

The Hawkeyes and Hoosiers will work with the Big Ten Conference to reschedule the game. If the game cannot be rescheduled, it will be considered a “no-contest.”

Iowa has had six games postponed or canceled because of COVID-19 so far this season. The Hawkeyes canceled three nonconference games against Drake, Seton Hall, and USC because of COVID-19 issues in their program.  Iowa’s games against Penn State and Illinois, originally scheduled for Dec. 30 and Jan. 2, respectively, were postponed because of issues within the Nittany Lion and Illini programs.

The Iowa-Penn State contest has been rescheduled for Jan. 25 in State College, Pennsylvania, and the Iowa-Illinois game will now be on Feb. 12 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Iowa Athletics recommends that fans hold onto their tickets for the Iowa-Indiana contest, as the stubs will be honored for the rescheduled date or a rescheduled opponent this Sunday.

Iowa travels to Minneapolis this Thursday to take on Minnesota. The Hawkeyes and Golden Gophers will tip off at 7 p.m. at Williams Arena.
