HANNIBAL, Mo. – The Hannibal-LaGrange men’s basketball season opener has been postponed due to a shattered backboard.  After a dunk by Iowa Wesleyan center Jeff Harper, the glass in the basketball goal on the east side of Porter Gymnasium shattered and postponed the contest.

The contest was delayed with the Tigers up by seven. The game will restart on a date yet to be determined with 15:44 left in the first half and a 12-5 score.

The Trojans will host St. Ambrose University on November 3 at 7:00 p.m. before starting a long road trip.

Hannibal-LaGrange University is a Division I NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) institution and a member of the American Midwest Conference.
