Tip Time Against McNeese State Moved to 1 p.m.

CORPUS CHRISTI -

The tipoff for Saturday's men's basketball game between McNeese State and Texas A&M - Corpus Christi has been changed to 1 p.m. in Lake Charles, La. The game had originally been slated to begin at 3 p.m.

The time change was made so as not to coincide with the start of the New Orleans Saints playoff game.

McNeese and the Islanders will both be opening their Southland Conference season in the game, which will be played at Burton Coliseum. The Cowboys are 8-5 on the season and are undefeated at home with an 8-0 record. The Islanders are 5-9 on the year.

The game will be broadcast live on SportsRadio Corpus Christi, with Steven King on the call. Pregame begins at 12:40 p.m. on 1230 AM, 96.1 FM and 103.3 FM.
