AMES — With a winter storm looming for central Iowa, Iowa State’s men’s basketball game tonight against Omaha and its Thursday women’s basketball game against Drake have been canceled due to potential severe weather conditions, and will not be made up, the Cyclone Athletics Department announced Tuesday morning.
Iowa State Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said, “After consulting with both Omaha and Drake, we believe that canceling both games will afford the student-athletes from all four teams the opportunity to depart ahead of the storm and return safely to their homes to spend the holidays with their families.”
Fans who had purchased single-game tickets for either game will be issued a refund by the ISU Athletics Ticket Office.
