Tonight’s Big Ten men¹s basketball game between Iowa and Indiana will be postponed because of a piece of metal falling from the ceiling into seats in the lower bowl at Assembly Hall.
Indiana University Athletics director Fred Glass says a metal facing (roughly eight feet long by 14 inches wide), fell and damaged seats in the lower part of Section F, which is located in the northwest corner of the building.
Glass says safety is Indiana’s No.1 priority, and University engineers have advised him to postpone events in Assembly Hall until it can be determined what caused the facing to fall and ensure the safety of everyone attending an event in the facility.”
Glass says the rescheduling of the Iowa contest will be determined as soon as possible.
