(AP) - The Southeastern Conference has shifted its men’s basketball schedule this week because of icy weather moving into the region and COVID-19 issues.

The league announced Monday that South Carolina’s visit to No. 19 Tennessee is moving from Tuesday to Wednesday night because of a combination of a positive coronavirus test, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Volunteers program.

Three games were pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday because of the weather forecast.

No. 9 Alabama’s visit to Texas A&M is set to tip off Thursday at 2 p.m. ET. Mississippi State-Auburn and LSU-Mississippi are scheduled to start at 5 p.m. ET.
