The WKU Men’s Basketball game against Southern Mississippi has been rescheduled to be played on Feb. 7 in Hattiesburg, Miss.

The game was originally the first conference game of the season and to be played on Dec. 30. However, due to COVID-19 issues in the Golden Eagles program, it was put on hold. Game time and TV information have not been announced.

WKU will now play five games in 11 days with the rescheduled game, four of which will be on the road. The Hilltoppers will start that slate at Charlotte on Feb. 3, then Old Dominion on Feb. 5, Southern Miss on Feb. 7, back at home against Florida Atlantic on Feb. 10 and at UTSA on Feb. 13 to end the slate.
