The Iowa women’s basketball team will play Illinois on Sunday, Hawkeye Athletics announced Friday.

Tip is at 5 p.m. at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The game will air live on Big Ten Network.

The Hawkeyes had an open date on their schedule on Sunday after their game against Indiana was postponed because of COVID-19 cases within the Hoosier program.

Iowa was originally scheduled to play Illinois on Jan. 2, but the Illini pulled out of the contest because of COVID-19 cases within their program.

The Hawkeyes’ and Illini’s original rescheduled date was Feb. 12 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa and Illinois will no longer play on that date.

On Sunday, Iowa Athletics will honor tickets previously issued for the Iowa-Indiana women’s basketball game.  If the Hawkeyes and Hoosiers find a rescheduled date at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, only season ticket holders will be given new stubs for the contest.
