The Wednesday doubleheader for the NIU men’s and women’s basketball teams has been postponed, the school announced Tuesday.

The men were slated to play Ball State – a game that originally was scheduled for Tuesday – and the women were to face off against Akron.

The school announced that the men’s games Saturday against Akron and Jan. 4 against Buffalo have been postponed because of COVID-19-related issues within the NIU program.

The women are scheduled to play Saturday at Central Michigan. They are 3-5 this season and last played Dec. 16, a 103-71 loss at DePaul.

The men are 3-7 and last played Dec. 19 at UIC, a 61-60 loss. Their next scheduled game is Jan. 8 at Toledo.
