MITCHELL — The men's and women's college basketball doubleheader between Dakota Wesleyan and Northwestern College, scheduled for Thursday, December 15, has been postponed due to blizzard conditions across the region.

The matchups, which were scheduled to take place in Orange City, Iowa, will be rescheduled to a date to be determined.

Three of the conference's GPAC doubleheaders scheduled for Thursday were shelved due to the weather, with Dordt at Mount Marty and Morningside at Jamestown also postponed. The matchups taking place in Nebraska — Doane at Concordia and Briar Cliff at Hastings — will proceed on Thursday.

The next action for the Dakota Wesleyan women's basketball team, which has a 7-3 record and is ranked No. 21 in the country, will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18 at the Corn Palace against Presentation. The DWU men's team (5-6) will now head to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and play on Dec. 18 and Dec. 19 against St. Thomas (Fla.) and Rochester (Mich.).

Often, the "Mitchell Republic" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
