Iowa, Indiana to play Feb. 27 in makeup game; Iowa-Purdue moved to March 2

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- No. 15 Iowa and Indiana have settled on the makeup date for their game that was postponed this week after an 8-foot piece of metal fell from the ceiling at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Ind.

The teams will play Feb. 27 at Indiana in a game that will air on ESPN at 9 p.m. ET. The March 1 Purdue at Iowa game will now be played at 2 p.m. ET March 2.

Indiana postponed the Iowa game several hours before the scheduled tipoff Feb. 18 after the 8-foot long, 14-inch wide, 50-pound metal plate fell and damaged some empty seats in the northwest corner of the venerable arena. An inspection of the roof and ceiling found more places where melting snow and ice had loosened steel plates.
