Wednesday's basketball games involving Ware Shoals at Christ Church are canceled.
"It's because we already have a makeup game (from Tuesday against Whitmire), which is scheduled for this Wednesday," Ware Shoals athletic director Lance Abernathy said. "So, we'll be playing three games next week, and really that was the only week we could have made it up because — the following week — (Christ Church) would not be able to do it."
Today's games involving Georgia Southwestern at Lander were postponed from Wednesday, and they will start today with the women's game at 5:30. The games involving Erskine at Belmont Abbey, originally scheduled for Wednesday, are also today with the women's game starting at 5:30.
"We're not playing Saturday, but Belmont Abbey is," said Mark Peeler, Erskine's athletic director and men's basketball coach. "It changes the way you prepare. You don't get that extra day of preparation for Saturday's game if you're Belmont Abbey. A lot of discussion did go into (Wednesday's) game. A lot of what the bus company told us was to not make the trip. If we're going to err, we're going to err on the side of safety.
