Saturday’s Northwestern-DePaul men’s basketball game has been canceled due to positive COVID-19 results within the Blue Demons program. The game was to be played at Welsh-Ryan Arena in Evanston.

DePaul’s Monday game against Creighton is still scheduled to be played at Wintrust Arena.

“We will evaluate all potential options for a replacement opponent.” according to a statement Northwestern tweeted Thursday afternoon.
