Northwest Missouri State sophomore Luke Waters lays the ball in the hoop versus Missouri Western at Bearcat Arena.

As a result of COVID-19 protocols within the Northwest Missouri State men and Washburn women basketball programs, multiple MIAA games have been postponed this weekend.

The Bearcat men’s team will not play this weekend in games scheduled for Thursday at Washburn and Saturday at Emporia State at a later date. Northwest’s next scheduled game is next Wednesday at Fort Hays State.

The Northwest women’s team had its Thursday game with Washburn postponed because of a COVID-19 related issues within the Ichabod program.

However, the Missouri Western women have had their game Thursday at Emporia State postponed due to COVID-19 protocols. And due to COVID-19 issues within Washburn’s women’s program, there will be no game between the Ichabods and Griffon women on Saturday, leaving the Griffons without a game this.

The Bearcat women’s game at Emporia State is still tentatively on as scheduled for Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at White Auditorium in Emporia, Kansas.

Per MIAA policy, all games will be rescheduled at a later date. Both men’s programs already announced new times for their home games with Missouri Southern. Missouri Western will host the Lions at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 17. Northwest will host Southern at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1.

The Missouri Western men will be in action at 7 p.m. Thursday at Emporia State and face Washburn at 3 p.m. Saturday in Topeka, Kansas.
