COLUMBUS, Ohio – Due to the unhealthy air quality index in the Sacramento, Calif., area, Ohio State has postponed its women’s basketball game against Sacramento State on Friday, Nov. 16.
“With the current state of the air quality in and around the Sacramento area and in consultation with our medical staff, we determined that it was in the best interest of our student-athletes health and wellness to postpone the game,” said Carey Fagan, Associate AD Sport Administration & Student-Athlete Development. “We have a responsibility to our student-athletes and parents to ensure maximum safety. We will continue to monitor the air quality and safety concerns associated with the wild fires in California over the next several days and determine if it is suitable for our team to travel to Stanford for the game on Sunday.”
Sacramento State’s campus has been closed for the past three days due to unhealthy air quality levels. The two universities are working together on potential dates to reschedule the game.
