Missouri game at S.C. postponed; flight canceled

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Travel issues because of a winter storm have led to postponement of Missouri‘s men’s basketball game at South Carolina.

The teams were scheduled to meet Saturday at South Carolina’s Colonial Life Arena.

Missouri’s flight was among those canceled at Columbia (Mo.) Regional Airport after an inbound flight went off the runway and became stuck.

The National Weather Service had issued a winter storm warning for parts of Missouri calling for heavy snow with a accumulations of up 13 inches.
