Grambling’s Saturday slate put on ice, reset for Monday

Grambling’s basketball teams are staying home this weekend.

But it will be worth the wait.

Monday afternoon, both Grambling squads will be showcased on NBA TV as they play a doubleheader at Jackson State.

The women were initially slated to play at Grambling, but that shifted to everyone’s advantage Thursday evening. The schedule revisions were announced on Twitter late Thursday night.

Games set for Saturday were pushed back to Monday in deference to the winter storm and its consequences, including travel issues along I-20 and water and power supplies in Jackson.

Pregame coverage on NBA TV begins at 1:30 CST with tip time for the women’s matchup at Jackson State set for 2 o’clock. The men’s contest tips at 4:30.

It will be nine days between games for both Grambling teams, who last played at home against Texas Southern last Saturday. They will face Jackson State teams firmly in contention for Southwestern Athletic Conference championships.

On the men’s side, Jackson State (6-5) shares the league lead with Prairie View, both 6-0 in the SWAC. Grambling (9-9, 7-4) has wins in four of the last five games and stands fourth in the conference.

Texas Southern (7-7, 4-2) jumped ahead of GSU by virtue of its 75-73 victory at Grambling last Saturday afternoon.

The G-Men hope to reverse a 75-61 homecourt loss to Jackson State on Jan. 23.

The Lady Tigers (7-7, 6-4) cruised to a 65-46 victory over Texas Southern last Saturday.

They will line up against the league’s second-place team. The JSU squad is 8-1 in SWAC play and 9-5 overall.
