Ryerson athletics issued this statement on the postponing of the game.

“An incident occurred with 8:30 left in the warmup in which the backboard glass shattered following a Ryerson dunk. Staff worked to remove the broken backboard and replace it with a spare. Due to the time required to safely reinstall the glass, the referees and coaches of both teams agreed on postponing the game.”
