The Alabama men’s basketball game at Texas A&M, originally scheduled for Wednesday night, has been postponed due to inclement weather and potential travel issues, the SEC office announced Wednesday morning. 

Winter weather has caused travel problems in both Texas and Alabama. More snow and freezing rain is expected across Texas in the next 24 hours according to the National Weather Service, leading the SEC to make the change.

The game, originally scheduled for 8 p.m, Wednesday, was pushed back until Thursday at 2 p.m, but is now postponed indefinitely.

Alabama currently leads the SEC with a 12-1 league record. Texas A&M, which has not played since Jan. 30 due to COVID-19 issues, is 2-6 in the SEC.
