For a second time, Jackson State men's basketball game against Alcorn State has been postponed.

The teams plan to reschedule Thursday's matchup "for a date that better suits both programs at the current time," according to a release from Jackson State.

"A later date will be announced when both teams find a proper time to reschedule."

No further details were given.

The game was initially supposed to be the Tigers' home opener on Jan. 9, but it was postponed because of COVID-19 concerns.

Jackson State (2-5, 2-0 SWAC) looks to return to the court Saturday for what would be its home opener against Mississippi Valley State (0-11, 0-5).
