The threat of freezing rain and bad weather conditions on Monday have forced Mississippi Valley State officials to move up the time of the team's basketball games against Southern.

The times of the games have been rescheduled to 2 and 4:30 p.m. on Monday. This gives Southern traveling help to return to Baton Rouge from Itta Bena, Miss.

The times of the women's and men's basketball games were originally scheduled to be played at 6 and 8 p.m. on Monday.
