The Tiger Classic volleyball tournament, originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, has been moved to Rice University, LSU announced Monday in preparation for Tropical Storm Isaac.

The tournament field will feature LSU, No. 7 Purdue, No. 12 Washington and Rice with a six-match schedule that will remain the same. Matches will be played at Fox Gym, located next to Autry Court on the Rice campus. Admission is $5.

“Moving to the Tiger Classic to Houston is a precautionary measure,” Senior Associate Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator Miriam Segar said. “We are grateful to Rice University and appreciative of their administration for the support and understanding during this situation.”
