BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (February 15, 2021) – The Southeastern Conference has announced a revised schedule of men’s basketball games due to the icy weather that is moving throughout the region this week.
That includes the LSU at Ole Miss game originally scheduled for Wednesday night in Oxford, will now be played at The Pavilion at Ole Miss on Thursday at 4 p.m. CT and will be telecast on the SEC Network and broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network.
LSU’s opponent on Saturday in Baton Rouge, Auburn, will also play on Thursday at the same time, hosting Mississippi State.
In addition, the South Carolina at Tennessee game originally scheduled for Tuesday has been changed to Wednesday as a result of a combination of a positive test, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Tennessee basketball program, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 management requirements.
The SEC’s COVID-19 management requirements, as developed by the SEC’s Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force, are available on SECsports.com.
