The women’s basketball game on Monday, Jan. 18 between Rutgers and Indiana in Bloomington has been postponed due to continued COVID-19 concern within the Rutgers program. Rutgers’ scheduled games with Purdue (Jan. 7), Ohio State (Jan. 10), and Northwestern (Jan. 14) had previously been postponed.
The decision to postpone was made jointly by the Rutgers University Department of Athletics and its sports medicine staff in consultation with the Indiana program and the Big Ten Conference. The schools will work with the Conference office to identify potential rescheduling options later this season.
The health, safety and well-being of the student-athletes, the program’s coaching and support staff, and event personnel are the guiding concerns of all decision making within Rutgers Athletics. The program will resume its game schedule when its medical staff determines it is safe to do so based on protocols established by the Big Ten Conference.
