A decision Thursday night by East Baton Public Schools to move its students to virtual learning on Friday has altered the local basketball schedule.

The change forced two key games to be postponed. The highly anticipated rematch between Scotlandville and Liberty has now been moved to Monday night at Liberty.

Former Tara and LSU star Marcus Thornton’s jersey retirement ceremony is also scheduled for Monday. Tara will host the Class 1A White Castle, providing a backdrop to the ceremony.

Four boys’ games remain on Friday’s schedule, of which Port Allen hosts University High. Jehovah-Jireh and Episcopal will now play Episcopal instead of Istrouma. Additionally, Catholic hosts East Ascension.

There are two women’s games left – Denham Springs at University and Dunham at Parkview Baptist.

Several games have been pushed back to next week. However, a total of six games are scheduled for Friday in the Baton Rouge area.
