The Conference USA baseball tournament in Hattiesburg, Miss. – including UTSA’s first game – has been hit with an extended weather delay.

UTSA plays Florida Atlantic in Game 4. Originally set for tonight (Wednesday), it is now scheduled for 9 a.m. tomorrow (Thursday). That, of course, is based on the weather holding up. The forecast for Thursday calls for an 80 percent chance of rain.

– if UTSA loses Thursday morning, the Roadrunners play UAB at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
