The Tuesday night Michigan basketball game scheduled with Purdue – Fort Wayne has been cancelled, per multiple sources. The issue stems from the Fort Wayne side, per sources, not U-M.

That was confirmed in a release by the school.

“The Wolverines men’s basketball game against the Mastodons scheduled for Tuesday has been canceled due to internal COVID-19 protocols within the Purdue Fort Wayne program,” Michigan spokesman Tom Wywrot reported in a release.

“My first concern is for coach [Jon] Coffman and his players,” Michigan head coach Juwan Howard said. “I have said many times that we are living in a new world and we need to continue to be safe and diligent with taking care of each other.

“While we are disappointed we can’t play, we just want to make sure everyone is, and feels, safe and healthy.”

Fans who purchased single game tickets will receive a full refund. Further information will be provided by the ticket office as soon as possible. Fans with questions may contact the Michigan Ticket Office via email at [email protected]

Michigan’s next game is scheduled for Thursday, December 30, 2021 at Central Florida.  That game is set for a 7:00 p.m. tip-off on ESPN2.

Sources say Michigan will look to hold a closed scrimmage tonight instead.

The Wolverines notched a bounce-back win over Southern Utah Saturday, 87-50, after dropping a 75-65 Big Ten contest to Minnesota. They’re 7-4 and have one non-conference game remaining.
