(WHAS11) – The Indiana University men’s basketball game against Iowa was canceled after a piece of metal fell from the ceiling and landed on seats in the lower bowl.
About 6 and a half hours before the game started, a metal facing, roughly 8’ by 14”, fell and caused damage to seats in section F which is in the northwest corner of the building.
“Safety is our No.1 priority,” Fred Glass, Indiana University Vice President and Director of Athletics, said. "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 rescheduling of the Iowa contest and the status of Wednesday night’s women’s game with Michigan will be determined as soon as possible.
