Through 13 games in the 2020-21 season, Iowa men's basketball had avoided any COVID-related pitfalls on their way to an 11-2 start and a Top 5 ranking. Alas, that streak has come to an end. Thursday night's scheduled game with Michigan State has been postponed. 

Issues arose when a pair of Michigan State players, Steven Izzo and Mady Sissoko, were reported to have tested positive for COVID-19 earlier on Wednesday. 

When will this game be rescheduled? Who knows! The rest of the Big Ten season is likely to be a game of musical chairs in terms of rearranged games and newly postponed games. Fingers crossed the league is able to get all games in somehow. Meanwhile, Iowa's next game is scheduled to be a trip to Evanston to play Northwestern on Sunday, January 17 at 8 PM CT, with television coverage from BTN. 

EDIT: Just kidding! Iowa-Northwestern has been moved up to earlier on Sunday: 

Eagle and Raftery? CBS? Business is picking up!
