Winter Storm Forces Rescheduling of Wednesday Basketball

ALTOONA, Pa. – Due to the effects of Winter Storm Petra on the Altoona area, Wednesday night's Penn State Altoona women's basketball Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Tournament game against Penn State Behrend has been postponed.

The playoff game, a first round AMCC Tournament matchup, has been rescheduled to Thursday, February 21. Tipoff will be 6:00 p.m. in the Adler Arena.

With the expectation of significant snow and ice accumulations throughout the day on Wednesday, the decision was made by Penn State Altoona officials to close campus for the day. The evening's basketball game was subsequently moved to Thursday.

The winner of Thursday night's first round AMCC Tournament game between fourth-seeded Penn State Altoona and fifth-seeded Penn State Behrend will advance to the conference semifinal round on Saturday, February 23, when that team will face number one seed La Roche College in Pittsburgh.
