The Missouri men’s basketball home game scheduled for Saturday night against Texas A&M has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns within the Aggies program. 

No makeup date has been announced for the matchup, the Southeastern Conference announced Wednesday afternoon.

Texas A&M hasn’t played since Jan. 30 because of positive COVID-19 cases.

On his radio show Monday, Tigers head coach Cuonzo Martin said if the Aggies couldn’t play this weekend, he would first pursue another SEC game to fill the opening. Then, Martin said he would look for a nonconference opponent on short notice.

Next up on No. 24 Missouri's schedule is a road game against Florida next Wednesday.

The league previously decided to leave March 6 open for rescheduled regular-season games before the conference tournament. Missouri likely will host LSU, Vanderbilt or Texas A&M that day, which will also serve as its rescheduled senior day. 

The Tigers stand at 14-7 overall and 7-7 in the SEC after Tuesday’s loss to Mississippi.
