Marksville Lady Tigers playoff game moved again to Thursday

Winter weather has forced the second round Class-AAA girls basketball game between Richwood High of Monroe and Marksville High to be moved for a third time this week.

The game will be played on Thursday night at 6 p.m. at the Marksville High gym. The winner of the game will face top seeded University High on Saturday in the state quarterfinals. If Marksville wins they will have to travel to Baton Rouge. No game time has been set for Baton Rouge.

Winter weather has hit the northern part of Louisiana all week. Ice and snow has prevented Richwood from traveling. The weather is expected to improve later today and Thursday.
