Milwaukee reschedules two men's basketball games

Milwaukee has rescheduled the first two games of its men's basketball season.

School officials announced their game at Kansas State that had been scheduled for Tuesday will now take place Dec. 11 to allow for proper COVID-19 re-entry protocols. Milwaukee's game at Western Michigan has been pushed back from Dec. 12 to Dec. 13.

Milwaukee had paused team activities Nov. 21 following a positive COVID-19 test result in its Tier 1 group. The Tier 1 group includes players, coaches, team managers and support staff.

The Nov. 21 decision resulted in the cancellation of the MKE Classic, which was supposed to serve as Milwaukee's season-opening event.

The MKE Classic was a three-team event featuring Milwaukee, North Dakota State and Southern Mississippi that would have run from Nov. 27-29.
