COVID forces postponements for No. 13 Mizzou, South Carolina
COVID-19 has forced the Southeastern Conference to shuffle its upcoming league slate yet once again.
The SEC revealed Saturday that No. 13 Missouri’s game versus Vanderbilt and No. 9 Tennessee’s contest with South Carolina, both set up for Tuesday, have been postponed.
Rather, the Volunteers will now play the host Commodores on Tuesday, the league stated. Makeup dates have actually not yet been announced for the other contests.
“The Tennessee at South Carolina and Vanderbilt at Missouri men’s basketball video games of January 12 have been delayed due to a combination of favorable tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of people within the Missouri and South Carolina basketball programs,” the SEC stated in a declaration.
Missouri, which stopped briefly all group activities, hopes to go back to practice on Wednesday.
The Tigers (7-2, 1-2) are scheduled to next play Texas A&M on Jan. 16.
