UPDATE: Central Michigan announced the game has been postponed and a makeup date has not yet been determined.
The Miami (OH) Redhawks were scheduled to face the Central Michigan Chippewas on Tuesday, but the game has been cancelled due to a threat of the coronavirus, per Jeff Goodman. The school announced Tuesday morning that one student had “very mild symptoms” and was being tested due to recent travel. Goodman is reporting two Miami (OH) students are awaiting test results, but the university has not provided an update.

We spoke with students at Miami University where the coronavirus is suspected in 2 students. The university sent emails to its 20,000 students. Several are wearing masks since getting the news. #Coronavirus #MiamiUniversity pic.twitter.com/H8pwrPbLIU— Local12David (@Local12David) January 28, 2020
CMU leads the MAC West Division right now at 4-2 in the league, so it seems likely the league and teams will want this game made up at some point before the conference tournament.
We’ll have more on this as it develops, including if and when the game will be made up.
