Some changes have been made to the upcoming schedule for both the Eastern men’s and women’s basketball teams.

The men’s team, after having their game on Nov. 28 against Butler postponed, have added a game to their schedule. They will play Dayton on the road Tuesday at 6 p.m.

The Flyers finished last season ranked third in the nation, but are unranked this season. They lost star player Obi Toppin, who was drafted by the New York Knicks with the eighth overall pick in the NBA Draft.

For the women’s team, their scheduled game against Minnesota on Wednesday will go ahead as planned, but their is a change to their plans for the weekend.

Eastern is hosting the Compass Tournament this season, but Southern Illinois has backed out. The games will also be more spread out for the tournament. Eastern will play Northern Illinois Friday at 3 p.m., Northern Illinois will play Western Illinois on Saturday at 2 p.m. and Eastern will play Western Illinois Sunday at 2 p.m.
