The BIG EAST Softball Championship, scheduled to play at the Belleville Softball Complex in South Bend, Ind., has been delayed due to inclement weather.

The tournament was set to start at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday morning with No. 3 Syracuse and No. 4 DePaul in the first game. Game two was to pit No. 1 Louisville with No. 8 St. John’s at 12:30 p.m.

At the very least, the first two games have been pushed back to 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The forecast is for continued rain the rest of the day.

At this time (9:00 a.m. EDT), the rest of the schedule for the tournament is TBA.

Please keep an eye on the rest of the day for continued updates.
