SMU basketball postponed, Hofstra unable to travel
SMU fans no longer have to choose between basketball or football Saturday.
The Mustangs' men's basketball game scheduled Saturday has been postponed after Hofstra's scheduled flight to Dallas was canceled Friday due to icy weather in North Texas.
Tipoff was set Saturday just an hour after kickoff of SMU's home football game, when the Mustangs (5-6) will be trying to get bowl eligible. They have to beat BCS-bound UCF to do that.
The basketball game, which was to be played in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, was rescheduled for Jan. 19. The makeup will be played in Moody Coliseum now being renovated on the SMU campus.
With the postponement, coach Larry Brown's Mustangs (8-2) will play three games in a four-day span during American Athletic Conference play.
