COVID-19 results forced Illinois to cancel its men’s basketball game Wednesday against visiting Florida A&M.

The contest will not be rescheduled.

The next scheduled game for Illinois (9-3, 2-0 Big Ten) is a conference contest at Minnesota on Sunday.

The Illini defeated Missouri, 88-63, in their most recent game last Wednesday in St. Louis. Kofi Cockburn led the way with 25 points and 14 rebounds.
