East Lansing—Michigan State men’s basketball postponed their second game in a row on Thursday, as the Spartans’ scheduled game with Indiana on Sunday at the Breslin Center has been postponed. Last night, the Spartans postponed tonight’s scheduled road game at Iowa after members of the program tested positive for COVID-19.

Mady Sissoko and Steven Izzo tested positive earlier this week, and the Spartans had a third undisclosed positive test yesterday afternoon before they were set to travel to Iowa.

No make-up dates have been announced, but the schools will work with the Big Ten to try to get the games played.

This marks the third time this season the Spartans will not play on the originally scheduled date. Back on Dec. 9, the Spartans expected to face-off against Virginia in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The teams canceled the game due to positive COVID-19 tests within the Virginia program. 

The Spartans last played on Jan. 8 when the team hosted Purdue in a stunning 55-54 defeat at the Breslin Center. The MSU women’s team also postponed their game that was originally scheduled for tonight at Illinois due to positive COVID tests in their program. 

The Spartans’ next scheduled game is next Saturday, Jan. 23 at 12 PM when the team hosts Illinois.
