Missouri women’s basketball just can’t catch a break.

Hours before tipoff, the Tigers’ scheduled game at Auburn for 2 p.m. Sunday was postponed due to a combination of positive COVID-19 tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Auburn women’s basketball program.

Missouri’s previously scheduled game with Vanderbilt on Jan. 7 was postponed due to the Commodores’ COVID-19 troubles, making this announcement the second time an SEC team has had to reschedule with the Tigers. Missouri underwent a 17-day layoff earlier in the season due to a virus outbreak within the program.

The Tigers are scheduled to play next against Ole Miss at 6 p.m. Thursday in Oxford, Miss.
