KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Heavy snow in Columbia has forced the University of Missouri to postpone Saturday's men's basketball game against South Carolina.

The team was scheduled to leave Columbia, Mo. for Columbia, S.C. on Friday afternoon, but decided not to due to the snow.

Late Friday night, MU announced the game has been tentatively rescheduled for Sunday at noon, pending Mizzou's ability to travel to South Carolina. The school will make a final decision on Saturday afternoon.

At the Columbia, Mo. airport on Friday, an American Airlines plane slid off the runway. Authorities blamed the winter weather. The plane just arrived from Dallas. No one was hurt. According to KOMU, the airport shut down to departures and arrivals after the incident
