A falling piece of metal postpones the basketball game between Indiana and Iowa.

IU Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass has announced that the basketball game between Iowa and Indiana is postponed as a result of a piece of metal falling from the ceiling into seats in the lower bowl.

Roughly six and a half hours before game time, a metal facing about eight feet long and fourteen inches wide fell and damaged seats in the northwest corner of the building.

Glass ensured, "Safety is our No.1 priority."

“Our University engineers have advised us 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."

The rescheduling of the Iowa contest and tomorrow night's women's game with Michigan will be determined as soon as possible.
