GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV)- The Horizon League Commissioner has determined the home game cancellation for Thursday, Dec. 30, as a forfeit win for UW-Green Bay.

“We prefer to play obviously, but we know especially in the last year and a half-two years here there are a lot of things out of our control,” said Josh Moon, UW-Green Bay Athletic Director.

DetroitTitans.com is reporting both the Mercy men’s and women’s games have been canceled due to a spike in COVID-19 cases.

This is the second time a game has been canceled due to COVID. The first was a match with Chicago State, which resulted in a “no contest” decision by Horizon.

“I think for our student athletes and our coaches, they’ve done a great job having perseverance and not letting stuff like this impact them,” said Moon.

The team is set to play Oakland at Kress on Jan. 1. Tip-off is at 1 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis (WFRV) – The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay women’s basketball team announced its home game against Detroit Mercy that was scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 30 has been canceled due to health and safety issues within the Detroit Mercy program.

According to a press release from the school, the Horizon League is currently trying to determine if the game will be declared a non-contest or a forfeit in Green Bay’s favor.

Fans who purchased single-game tickets for this game can be refunded. Season ticket holders will have the option to exchange their tickets for a future regular-season game this season or can be refunded upon request.

This cancellation does not impact Green Bay’s game on Jan. 1 against Oakland. The Phoenix is still scheduled to welcome the Golden Grizzlies to the Kress Center for a 1 p.m. tip-off on Saturday.
