Nationally ranked basketball teams postpone next week’s matchup

The third ranked Northwest Missouri men’s basketball game at 16th ranked Missouri Western scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 19, has been postponed.

The Missouri Western men’s basketball program has paused full team activities due to positive COVID-19 results among its Tier 1 personnel. Tier 1 personnel include student-athletes, coaches and any staff member whose job requires close regular contact. The Griffons’s next four games, including the contest with Northwest, have been postponed.

Northwest and Missouri Western will work together to reschedule the contest.
