HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- The Sam Houston men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader at Houston Baptist Saturday has been postponed due to the effects of inclement weather across the state this week.

The Bearkat men will now play the Huskies in Houston on March 1 with a start time yet to be determined. The Bearkat women’s game has been indefinitely postponed and will only be made up if a date for both teams becomes available.

This is the second time this week men’s and women’s basketball games had to be rescheduled. The men were supposed to play at Lamar on Feb. 17 and the women were to host the Cardinals the same evening at Johnson Coliseum.

The Sam Houston men will now travel to Beaumont on Monday for a 7 p.m. game at the Montagne Center. The women’s home game will be moved to Monday 6 p.m.

Both games are slated to be aired on ESPN+.

Tickets for Monday’s women’s game are available but must be purchased in advance either online or by calling the Bearkat Ticket Office at 936-294-1729.

Fans attending should be aware of all SHSU, Southland Conference and NCAA COVID-19 policies upon arrival and throughout the duration of the game and while on campus.
