Michigan State vs. IN canceled amid COVID-19 issues

College basketball Michigan State vs. Purdue

At least two of those tests were for players, when Mady Sissoko and Steven Izzo tested positive over the weekend.

Spartans coach Tom Izzo, who tested positive for the coronavirus in November, says his son and the freshman from West Africa are roommates.

IU men's basketball's game against Michigan State on January 17 in East Lansing, Michigan, has been postponed due to an increase in COVID-19 cases within Michigan State's program.


Tom Izzo said the two players tested positive "four days ago".

"It saddens me of course because Mady was a guy that was starting to play more minutes and we knew with Iowa and IL coming up size would help", Izzo said. "This virus does not discriminate and I can't emphasize enough how important it is to wear a mask, wash your hands and follow protocols".

Michigan State-Iowa originally scheduled for Thursday night is off for now due to COVID cases within the Spartans program. The team is tested every day for COVID-19.
