Today's Newman, Butler basketball games postponed

This week's snow and frigid temperatures postponed Newman University's Wednesday home basketball games with Arkansas-Fort Smith.

Newman athletic director Vic Trilli said the games will be played Monday, beginning with a 5 p.m. women's game.

"With the snow that fell in Oklahoma between Wichita and Fort Smith, and wind chills expected to be well below zero, we felt like this was the responsible thing to do," Trilli said.

Newman's next men's game is at 3 p.m. Saturday against visiting Dallas Baptist. DBU does not have a women's team.

Butler Community College's men's and women's games at Dodge City have also been postponed. Plans are to play those Thursday with the women beginning at 5:30 p.m.
