One of the SEC basketball games scheduled for Saturday has been put on hold. South Carolina announced Friday that the Gamecocks men’s basketball game against Missouri, scheduled for 1 p.m., has been postponed.
Winter storm Gia has done a number on Columbia, Mo. Twitter user Rob Quinn shared that he was on a plane leaving the Columbia airport that slid off the runway. The storm is keeping the Tigers hoops squad from leaving Columbia to play the game in South Carolina.
