All games scheduled for Monday have now been postponed until Tuesday. The first five games of the tournament are now scheduled for Tuesday, following the original schedule for the order of the games. The first game will now start at 9:30 a.m. and each successive game is scheduled to start 25 minutes after the conclusion of the previous game. The schedule for the remainder of the tournament will be announced late Tuesday after the conclusion on Tuesday's games.
Although there is not set starting time for Mansfield’s game with Mercyhurst it is expected to start somewhere around 6-6:30 p.m.
