Iowa men's basketball game vs. Nebraska postponed due to snow


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Hawkeyes’ Thursday night men’s basketball game at Nebraska has been postponed, the Iowa Athletics Department announced in a release Tuesday.

The game was scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m. Thursday, but weather forecasts calling for heavy snow — from 15 to 20 inches in the Lincoln area — starting Thursday morning pushed the game back to 1 p.m. Saturday. The announcement came in advance for the safety of student-athletes, fans and game-day personnel.

There was a possibility that the game would be moved up to tonight, but both Iowa and Nebraska have conference byes this weekend.

The game was originally slated to air on ESPN2, but with the rescheduling, no television information is currently available. The Iowa Athletics Department will announce that information when it becomes available.

Fans who had purchased tickets for the originally scheduled Thursday game can use those same tickets on Saturday. As a reminder, all ticket backs note that days and times are subject to change, according to the release. The Athletics Department added that tickets remain available for Saturday’s rescheduled game with prices at $10 and $15. All tickets can be purchased at Huskers.com, or can be bought at the Devaney Center beginning 90 minutes prior to tip-off.

All of these decisions were made in conjunction with the Big Ten Conference.

Nebraska will enter Saturday’s game with a 3-10 conference record, and are currently riding a two-game losing streak. The Cornhuskers sit in the bottom half in all but a handful of league statistical categories.

Iowa’s three-game winning streak is the third current longest in the Big Ten — both Indiana and Illinois are on four-game streaks.

The Hawkeyes’ 72-51 win over Minnesota on Sunday help push the Black and Gold into a tie for sixth-place in the conference with Illinois and Minnesota. All three teams have a 6-7 mark in conference play.
