Mizzou basketball game at South Carolina is postponed
Missouri was all set to play its Saturday afternoon basketball game at South Carolina until Mother Nature kept the team from traveling.
The Tigers (9-4, 0-1 SEC) postponed their first conference road game, scheduled for noon at South Carolina, because of a winter storm that hit Missouri on Friday. The storm is expected to continue into Sunday. The team plans to coordinate with Southeastern Conference officials and the Gamecocks about a makeup date.
MU was originally to fly out of Columbia Regional Airport on Friday but had to change to Kansas City International Airport after an American Airlines flight from Dallas slid off the runway in Columbia after landing. The plane was caught between both runways, causing the airport to shut down.
Missouri’s next game is 8 p.m. Wednesday against Alabama on the SEC Network. It will be the Tigers’ second game in 18 days.
