XU Wednesday doubleheader with William Carey canceled
NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana and William Carey University have mutally agreed to cancel their Wednesday (Feb. 1) basketball doubleheader.
William Carey's campus in Hattiesburg, Miss., was struck this past Saturday (Jan. 21) by an EF3 tornado (wind speeds between 136 to 165 mph). Campus damages included Carey's basketball facility, Clinton Gym.
"We are keeping William Carey and the Hattiesburg community in our thoughts and prayers as they repair and rebuild," XULA Director of Athletics & Recreation Jason Horn said. "At this point we have not decided if we will replace Carey with other opponents."
XULA's next games will be Saturday in the Crosstown Classic against Dillard at the Convocation Center. The women's game will tip off at 3 p.m., with the men to start at 5.
