DEKALB, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF) – The Northern Illinois University men’s basketball game, scheduled for Thursday, December 2 at DePaul, will not be played.
DePaul paused all men’s basketball team activities on November 19 and the decision not to play Thursday was made by DePaul Athletics’ medical personnel to ensure a period of conditioning necessary to safely return to competition.
NIU is working to secure an additional non-conference game. An announcement will be made when that information is finalized.
NIU has played one game so far this season. That was a 65-61 loss to the UIC Flames last Wednesday evening. NIU’s next game will be this Wednesday night at home against SIU-Edwardsville.
