FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Tonight’s Purdue Fort Wayne at Ball State women’s basketball game has been cancelled as the Mastodons are dealing with COVID issues within the program.

Per a statement from PFW:

“The Purdue Fort Wayne women’s basketball team’s game at Ball State originally scheduled for Friday (Nov. 12) has been canceled due to breakthrough COVID-19 cases in the program.

The team is following all procedures and protocols implemented by Purdue University Fort Wayne, the Allen County Health Department and the Indiana State Department of Health.”
