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.
