Tonight's Iowa vs. Indiana men's basketball game postponed

BLOOMINGTON — Indiana University Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass has announced that tonight’s Big Ten men’s basketball game between Iowa and Indiana will be postponed as a result of a piece of metal falling from the ceiling into seats in the lower bowl the school announced Tuesday afternoon.

Roughly 6 1/2 hours before gametime, a metal facing (roughly eight feet long by 14 inches wide), fell and damaged seats in the lower part of Section F, which is located in the northwest corner of the building the school said in a press release.

“Safety is our No.1 priority,” noted Glass in the release. “Our university engineers have advised us to postpone events in Assembly Hall until it can be determined what caused the facing to fall and ensure the safety of everyone attending an event in the  facility.”

The rescheduling of the Iowa contest and the status of Wednesday night’s women’s game with Michigan will be determined as soon as possible the school said.

A newsconference has been scheduled at 7 p.m. Tuesday to discuss today's events regarding the damage to Assembly Hall and postponement of tonight's basketball game between Iowa and Indiana.
