SIOUX CITY, Iowa-An important basketball doubleheader in the Great Plains Athletic Conference for the Dakota Wesleyan University men's and women's teams has been postponed due to severe winter weather.

The Tigers and Morningside University were set to play Wednesday but that doubleheader has been moved to Thursday in Sioux City, Iowa. The women's game will be at 6 p.m., followed by the men's game at 8 p.m. at Allee Gymnasium.

DWU called off classes on Wednesday due to the snowstorm that blew through Mitchell.

Both women's teams are among the top squads in the conference, with No. 9-ranked DWU at 10-2 in the league and 19-2 overall. Morningside, ranked No. 11 in this week's national poll, is 16-6 overall and 7-5 in the conference.

On the men's side, No. 13 DWU and No. 19 Midland are tied for first place at 9-2 in the conference, while Morningside is pursuing a national tournament berth at 16-6 overall and 6-5 in the league.

Elsewhere in the GPAC, the snowstorm also postponed the Briar Cliff at Mount Marty doubleheader scheduled for Wednesday in Yankton. Those games will be played Thursday at 6 p.m., and 8 p.m.

It's the third time the Tigers have dealt with weather schedule changes this year. The women's squad had a contest with the College of St. Mary postponed in December and both teams had a doubleheader with Concordia postponed on Dec. 15. Those games with the Bulldogs will be played on Feb. 12 at the Corn Palace.
