The Greyhounds warmed up before Saturday's game the same way they have done in 11 previous contests this season, but then joined the officials, game workers and fans in waiting for an opponent who never showed up to play.
ASU Mid-South was playing the final game in the 2019 Jackson State Classic in Jackson, Tennessee, after earning an 85-72 victory over Campbellsville University at Somerset the previous day. Jackson State Community College had defeated Mid-South Prep in Friday's nightcap and had just defeated Somerset before the Greyhounds took the floor to warm up. But as the clock ticked down to tipoff time Jackson State officials notified head coach Chris Parker that they were unaware of Mid-South Prep's whereabouts. After a 15-minute delay Coach Parker was notified that Mid-South Prep would not be coming to play and thus forfeit the contest.
The Greyhounds (9-3) next travel to Booneville, Mississippi, to take on Northeast Mississippi Community College Tuesday at 6:30pm. Northeast Mississippi is currently 10-1 and receiving votes in the NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Poll.
