Kentucky-Mizzou men's basketball game rescheduled due to COVID-19 issues
The Kentucky Wildcats had their SEC/Big 12 Challenge game against No. 5 Texas canceled on Saturday due to COVID-19 issues in the program.
That also put Kentucky’s Tuesday night matchup in Columbia against No. 18 Mizzou in question. And, indeed, on Monday, the game was rescheduled.
Per the Kentucky men’s basketball Twitter account, the game has been delayed a day and will now take place on Wednesday, Feb. 3:
