The Big 12 has announced that several men’s basketball conference matchups will be rescheduled for the week of March 1-7. To avoid scheduling a team to play three games in successive weeks, the West Virginia at Baylor men’s basketball game scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 25 has been canceled.

West Virginia’s previously postponed home games against Baylor, TCU and Oklahoma State will all be played during the final week of the regular season.

After their home game Saturday against TCU, the Mountaineers will now host Baylor Tuesday at 5 p.m. on either ESPN or ESPN2. Then, WVU will host TCU next Thursday. The start time for that game has not yet been announced.

WVU will now conclude the regular season next Saturday with a home game against Oklahoma State.

These schedule changes mean that West Virginia’s three-game road trip through Texas has now been shortened by one contest, and that WVU will now play four home games in a row to end the regular season.

WVU will also play every Big 12 team twice, with the exception of Baylor.
