Maryland women’s basketball’s home game against Purdue was rescheduled to Jan. 14 at noon, it was announced Monday. Originally planned to air on Big Ten Network, the contest will instead stream on Big Ten Plus.
The Terps and Boilermakers were scheduled to play on Jan. 6, but had to postpone the game after a leak appeared in the XFINITY Center roof. After a 45-minute delay, the teams left the court before an announcement was made that the game would be played at a later date. Shortly after, Maryland athletic director Damon Evans said that the programs were looking at the following week as a possibility due to an opening in the schedule.
Maryland’s next game comes at Michigan State on Tuesday. After facing the Boilermakers five days later, the Terps will have two days before a home bout with Ohio State.
