The Southwestern Conference boys' basketball affair between the Alton Redbirds and East St. Louis Flyers that was postponed on Jan. 12 has been rescheduled for Feb. 9 at AHS.
The game was canceled in wake of the shooting death of 11-year-old Romell Jones on Jan. 11. It was done to honor the memory of the young Alton student.
The Redbirds and Flyers will meet in the junior varsity game at 6 p.m. on Feb. 9 with the varsity contest to immediately follow, tentatively at 7:30 p.m.
The Birds are in action at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Edwardsville, following the Alton girls' game vs. the Tigers at 6 p.m. Friday at Lucco-Jackson Gymnasium inside EHS.
