AUSTIN (KXAN) — After moving the Texas Longhorns men’s basketball game at Oklahoma twice — from Tuesday to Wednesday then Wednesday to Thursday — the game has been postponed indefinitely because of continuing bad weather.
The No. 12 Longhorns (13-5, 7-4) already had three Big 12 games postponed because of COVID-19 issues. The game with the Sooners is Texas’ fourth postponed game of the season.
This was supposed to be one of the busiest regular season weeks in history with four games in eight days. Instead, the Longhorns will host West Virginia at 2 p.m. on Saturday one week after their last game, a 70-55 win over TCU.
Texas planned to makeup the game at Iowa State on Thursday, but then postponed it again because of the uncertainty with the Oklahoma game.
The Big 12 built some breathing room in the schedule with a 10-day gap between the final scheduled regular season game and the conference tournament. Texas’ final regular season game is scheduled for Feb. 27 at Texas Tech. It’s unlikely the league can makeup all the games.
Texas had their Big 12 opener at Baylor postponed on Dec. 13, then lost back-to-back games at Iowa State on Jan. 20 and at TCU on Jan. 23 because of COVID-19 issues in those programs.
TEXAS WOMEN SCHEDULE UPDATE
The UT women’s basketball team (14-6, 8-5) was scheduled to play at TCU Wednesday night, but that game has now been rescheduled for March 7 in Fort Worth. The Longhorns are back in action at 2 p.m. Sunday when they host Kansas State.
