GAMES RESCHEDULED: In Ellisville, Miss., the NJCAA Region 23 tournament was rescheduled because of rain.

Friday’s schedule was postponed, and No. 1 LSU-Eunice (57-2) will play the winner of Saturday’s Jones County-Pearl River elimination game. The winner of the game will need to beat the Lady Bengals twice to take the title.

With their two wins Thursday, LSU-Eunice secured a spot in next week’s NJCAA National Championship tournament.

The Lady Bengals’ game on Saturday is still at a time to be announced.
