COLUMBIA, S.C. — Benedict College athletic department officials have announced that today’s Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference game between the Lady Tigers and LeMoyne-Owen College will be played at Columbia College.
The contest will tip off at its regularly-scheduled time of 5:30 p.m. at Columbia College’s Porter Gymnasium.
Benedict College’s gymnasium is being used for campus registration, forcing the change of venue.
The Benedict College men, however, will play LeMoyne-Owen in the Benedict gymnasium at 7:30 p.m., as regularly scheduled.
Benedict College encourages all Tiger fans to support the women’s team at Columbia College, and then return to Benedict for the men’s game.
