From Southern Athletics
Baton Rouge, La. -- As a result of Thursday morning's bomb-related scare on the Mississippi Valley State campus, Monday's Southwestern Athletic Conference basketball game in Itta Bena, Miss. has been postponed until Feb. 27, Southern Athletics Director Dr. William Broussard announced Thursday afternoon.
Southern's men's and women's basketball programs, which head into Saturday's game at Arkansas-Pine Bluff 4-0 in SWAC play, will return to Baton Rouge. The Feb. 27 makeup date was selected to accomodate both teams. The Jaguars face Alcorn State March 1 while Valley has games scheduled on March 1 and 3.
The Jaguars were originally scheduled to play Valley on Jan. 20 at the Leflore County Civic Center in Greenwood, Miss., where the Delta Devils are playing their home games for the 2013-14 season while renovations to their arena in Itta Bena, Miss. are completed.
