DeKALB — The men’s basketball program will be pausing all activities for at least the next seven days due to positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing, according to a Tuesday tweet from NIU Athletics.

With all team-related activities pausing, this means NIU’s Tuesday home game against the Ohio University Bobcats has been postponed. This also means Saturday’s home game against the University at Buffalo Bulls has been postponed.

There is no official word if Jan. 26’s game against the Bowling Green State University Falcons will be postponed as well.
