Air Force will make up the basketball games lost this past weekend to the government shutdown.
The Mountain West announced Thursday that the Falcons men’s basketball team will host Fresno State on Monday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m.
The Air Force women will play at Fresno State at 8 p.m. Monday
The Fresno State men were in Colorado Springs this past weekend and the Falcons women were in Fresno when Saturday's games were called off only hours in advance because of what academy officials have called an interpretation from Air Force brass as to how to allocate money and handle events during the shutdown.
For the Air Force men, the rescheduling means seven of the season’s final 11 games will be played at home. The opposite is true for the women’s team, which broke through with its first victory of the season on Wednesday night against Utah State.
Tickets for the men's game that was postponed will be honored for the rescheduled date. The Air Force ticket office also said it would exchange those tickets for any another home game should the new date present a conflict.
