Notre Dame’s game at Howard on MLK Day canceled

The men’s basketball game between Notre Dame and Howard scheduled for Monday has been canceled because of COVID-19 concerns in the Howard program.

The Bison had been set to host Notre Dame on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“We are all incredibly disappointed by this cancellation,” Howard athletic director Kery Davis said. “This was a tremendous opportunity to bring national exposure to our basketball team and the university. However, it goes without saying that the health and welfare of our student-athletes is our priority first and foremost.”
