WBC basketball games moved up to Wednesday


From Williams Baptist College

Basketball games originally scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 20, at Williams Baptist College have now been moved up one night to Wednesday. The games against Benedictine University-Springfield will begin with the women's game at 5:30 p.m., with the men's game to follow at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in WBC's Southerland-Mabee Center.

Williams Athletic Director Jeff Rider said the games were rescheduled to avoid the threat of winter weather in Illinois on Thursday, which could have prevented the Benedictine teams from reaching WBC safely.

Rider noted that the American Midwest Conference is in its last week of regular season play, and the games, if postponed, would be difficult to reschedule before the conference tournament next week.

Both the Lady Eagles and Eagles of Williams are currently in fourth place in the AMC standings.
