Saturday’s men’s basketball game between No. 10 Michigan State and Michigan was postponed because of COVID-19 issues with the Wolverines.

Based on the results of medical testing Friday evening, Michigan (7-6, 1-2 Big Ten) fell below the Big Ten roster minimum of seven scholarship players, the university said in a news release.

Both schools said they will work with the Big Ten to reschedule the game.

The Spartans (13-2, 4-0), who arrived in Ann Arbor Friday night for the rivalry game, now will be idle until they host Minnesota on Wednesday. The Wolverines are scheduled to host No. 3 Purdue on Tuesday.
