Did Sports Authority's BK somehow cause a drop in my credit score?

I received an alert that my Equifax score dropped by 31 points after an account status update from Sports Authority. The account updated to closed by credit grantor. This is the only change I detected before the drop in score. Has anyone experienced something like this? I had the account about 9 months before they went bankrupt.

Are your scores from here or elsewhere like credit karma? 

 

It sounds like maybe its impacting your utilization if you didnt have a lot of available credit.

 

Would need to know more about your profile
