EKU game times moved

To avoid the conflict of playing a home basketball doubleheader against the BCS National Championship Game between Alabama and Texas, Jacksonville State officials have moved the start times of their Jan. 7 games to earlier in the day.

The Gamecocks play Eastern Kentucky on that date and the appeal of Alabama football to so many people was expected to impact the crowd.

The women's game now is set for 3 p.m., while the men will follow at 5:30 p.m.

The Gamecocks have played games on the night of the National Championship Game before, but never was one of the state's two major programs involved.
