The forecast for snow Friday and Saturday has forced several basketball games to be rescheduled.

The Helias boys basketball team will play its road game against Rolla today instead of Friday. The JV game will start at 5:30 p.m. with the varsity to follow around 7 p.m.

The originally scheduled freshman game will not be played because of a scheduling conflict and could be rescheduled.

The Blair Oaks Falcons have also moved their home game against Versailles up a day. The Falcons and Tigers will get tonight's Tri-County Conference action started at 5 p.m. with the freshman contest. The JV game will start around 6:15 p.m. with the varsity game beginning around 7:30 p.m.
