Frigid temperatures disrupt prep schedule

High school basketball is an indoor sport, but that doesn't mean frigid weather outside can't disrupt the ballgames.

Multiple postponements in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia have resulted from Monday and Tuesday's barely-reaching-the-teens temperatures. A list of what we have so far, with makeup dates if available:

• Dobyns-Bennett at Sullivan East (Monday, Jan. 13; JV boys play first)

• Sullivan South at Unicoi County (Saturday, Jan. 18)

• Morristown West at Cherokee (Monday, Jan. 13; games begin at 4:15 p.m.)

• Johnson County at Elizabethton (Thursday, Jan. 23; no girls JV, boys JV at 5 p.m.)

• Rye Cove at Twin Springs (Wednesday, Jan. 8)

• Wise Central at John Battle

• University High at Tri-Cities Christian

• South Greene at North Greene (Saturday, Jan. 11)

• West Greene at Chuckey-Doak (Saturday, Jan. 11)

Also, the Big 6s swim meet at Tennessee High was postponed.
