IU reschedules game after Assembly Hall issues

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — There’s a new date for the Indiana University men’s basketball game forced to be rescheduled when a piece of metal fell from the top of Assembly Hall on Tuesday.

IU rescheduled its game against the University of Iowa for 9 p.m. on Feb. 27. The game will be played in Assembly Hall.

No one was injured Tuesday when the piece of metal fell onto a section of seats. The next day, IU women’s basketball played but parts of Assembly Hall were roped off as a precaution.

“Both our University and outside consulting engineers have advised us–and we in turn have advised the Big Ten–that the remediation of the problems at Assembly Hall will be 100 percent complete by early next week and that Assembly Hall will be safe and ready to host Thursday’s men’s basketball game without any limitations or restrictions,” said Fred Glass, IU’s vice president and director of intercollegiate athletics, in a news release.
