After back-to-back weeks with zero scheduled disruptions, the Iowa women's basketball team had seemingly re-discovered its rhythmic routine of playing. However, the Hawkeyes are again dealing with another COVID postponement. 

Sunday's home game against No. 6 Indiana has been postponed due to COVID issues within the Hoosiers program, the league announced Tuesday evening. The two universities will work to re-schedule at a later date.

This unfortunately seemed inevitable, after Indiana's game Wednesday versus Michigan State was postponed Monday. Iowa has now had three schedule disruptions since Big Ten play resumed.

As a result, the Hawkeyes will have a lighter week ahead. After traveling to Minnesota Thursday evening, Iowa (10-4, 4-1 Big Ten Conference) won't play again until next Tuesday at Penn State. That game is a reschedule from Dec. 30.  

The Hawkeyes are scheduled to finish out January at Northwestern (Jan. 27) and against Ohio State (Jan. 31).
