Could weather affect LSU-UK?

LSU's game Tuesday night against Kentucky is still on as scheduled, but inclement weather may force a change. Officials from the SEC and both schools continue to monitor the situation.

LSU's game against Kentucky on Tuesday night may be postponed due to inclement weather, a source informed TSD.

Forecasts for Baton Rouge project high temperatures below freezing with a 100 percent chance of precipitation. LSU has not announced whether the University will be open Tuesday, though high schools and colleges in the state have already canceled classes.

A determination on the basketball game will come from the SEC league office, not from LSU or Kentucky officials. A source said the problem isn't getting the Kentucky team to Baton Rouge but rather ensuring that officials, the TV broadcast crew and other essential personnel to the stadium.

If the game does not Tuesday, it would likely be postponed until Wednesday.

As of 6 p.m. on Monday, the game is expected to tip off as scheduled. For ongoing updates, follow the TSD Message Board for all the latest.
