The Ohio State women’s basketball team announced Friday that both of its games in northern California this weekend have been canceled.

The Buckeyes were scheduled to play at Stanford on Sunday, but that game has been canceled because of poor air quality from the Camp Fire, which has been burning since Nov. 8 in Butte County, California, a little more than 200 miles northeast of Stanford’s Bay Area campus.

In addition, Ohio State’s game at Sacramento State, which was originally scheduled for Friday and had been postponed Thursday, is now canceled.

Ohio State will work with the Sacramento State and Stanford women’s basketball programs to reschedule the games for the 2019-20 season.

The absence of two games this weekend means that when Ohio State takes the floor on Nov. 29 against North Carolina at Value City Arena, it will have gone 18 days between games. Ohio State (1-2) lost to Connecticut 85-53 on Sunday.
