Women's Basketball - Sat, Dec. 26, 2009
CHICAGO - Due to the severe winter storm making its way across the Great Plains, Saint Xavier University Athletics was forced to alter its women's basketball holiday tournament schedule to accomodate the teams coming in from Iowa and Nebraska. The tourney will begin at 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 27, instead of its original 1 p.m. start time. The 3 p.m. game will feature University of St. Francis (Ill.) taking on Siena Heights University (Mich.).
The 5 and 7 p.m. games will be played as scheduled, but the game between Saint Ambrose University (Iowa) and Doane College (Neb.) will now take place at 9 p.m. Sunday. Due to Sunday's time changes, Monday's start times have also been modified in an effort to give teams playing in Sunday's late game ample time to prepare for its day two games. All Tuesday's game will remain at the originally scheduled times of 1, 3, 5 and 7 p.m.
