Inclement weather forces Texas to clear basketball, softball schedules

Texas guard Joanne Allen-Taylor puts up a shot up against TCU's Tavy Diggs in Austin on Jan. 20, 2021.  Texas and TCU's rematch on Wednesday has been postponed.

Due to inclement weather, three Texas teams now have some free time on Wednesday.

On Monday, the women's basketball and softball programs at Texas both found out that their games on Wednesday had been postponed. UT was supposed to travel to TCU for a basketball game. The Longhorns also were set to host North Texas' softball team.

And Tuesday, the Texas-Oklahoma men's basketball game that was originally postponed from Tuesday to Wednesday has moved again. That game now will be played Thursday in Norman.

The Big 12 has not yet announced a rescheduled women's rematch between the Longhorns and Horned Frogs, who met in Austin on Jan. 20. Last week, the conference moved a coronavirus-delayed battle between Texas and Oklahoma into an open slot on Feb. 27.

Texas will attempt to reschedule its softball game against a North Texas team that it is also supposed to play in Frisco this Friday. So far, Texas has had to call off all six of its scheduled games because of the weather in Austin. A season-opening showcase that featured the No. 3 (Arizona), No. 6 (Texas) and No. 8 (Alabama) teams in the nation was canceled this past weekend.

Not all UT teams will be idle in the middle of this week. The men's basketball squad had its game at Oklahoma pushed back to Wednesday. The Longhorns and Sooners were originally supposed to meet in Norman, Okla., on Tuesday.
