LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Tonight's men's basketball matchup between Indiana University and Iowa has been postponed after a piece of metal fell from the ceiling, according to a school official.
On Tuesday afternoon, a piece of metal roughly 8 feet long by 14 inches wide fell and damaged seats in the lower part of Section F, located in the northwest corner of the building.
"Safety is our No. 1 priority," said Indiana University President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass, in a written statement. "Our University engineers have advised us to postpone events in Assembly Hall until it can be determined what caused the facing to fall and ensure the safety of everyone attending an event in the facility."
The new date for the men's basketball game -- as well as the status of Wednesday night's women's basketball matchup with Michigan -- will be announced soon.
