SEC weekend basketball game has been postponed, non-conference game could take its place
Some unfortunate news to share out of the Southeastern Conference as the league has announced the postponement of the upcoming Arkansas at Texas A&M game.
The reason for the postponement? Texas A&M is having COVID issues, according to the SEC.
This marks the seventh postponement for the Aggies this season.
Arkansas coach Eric Musselman says his team found out as they were boarding the bus to leave Fayetteville to travel to Texas A&M. According to the leader of the Razorbacks, the team is holding out hope a non-conference game can take the place of the Texas A&M matchup.
“Found out while boarding the bus to travel to College Station today that our game tomorrow was cancelled. Our players are devastated that they do not get to compete. We are working with the league to see if we can add a non-conference game,” Musselman shared on Friday.
The Razorbacks have won seven SEC games in a row and are currently in second place in the SEC.
Texas A&M has not played a game since Jan. 31 and has had to postpone two matchups against Arkansas in a row.
