BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The LSU men’s basketball game against the Missouri Tigers that was scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 9, has been postponed due to COVID-19.

Officials said a combination of positive COVID-19 tests, contact tracing, and subsequent quarantining of members of the Missouri basketball program resulted in the postponement.

A make-up date has not been determined at this time.

With the South Carolina at Ole Miss game scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 9, also postponed, the LSU game against Ole Miss that was originally scheduled for Feb. 17 will be played on Jan. 9 at Ole Miss with a 7:30 p.m. tip time.
