NIU women's opener against Illinois State cancelled

The Northern Illinois University women’s basketball team’s season opener, scheduled for Wednesday against Illinois State at the NIU Convocation Center, has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

NIU is working to secure an alternate opponent. An announcement will be made when that information is finalized.

Illinois State announced Friday morning that the game between the Huskies and Redbirds was canceled due to “limited roster numbers in conjunction with COVID-19 testing protocols”.

The move comes after the DePaul men's team announced it was postponing the start of its season and games through Dec. 1. NIU was slated to play DePaul on Dec. 3, but the game no longer appears on either team's schedule.
