NEW ORLEANS — The women’s basketball programs of Xavier University of Louisiana and Florida Memorial have mutually agreed to cancel their Wednesday basketball game at FMU.

The scratch will leave the Gold Nuggets (2-2) with a two-week gap between competitions. Their most recent game was a 62-43 victory at William Carey a week ago; their next game will tip off at 5 p.m. Nov. 29 against LSU-Alexandria at the Convocation Center.

The Gold Nuggets’ usual Thanksgiving home event, the Xavier Classic, was moved during the offseason to Dec. 17-18 and will include men’s games.

The XULA women have played just once at home this season — Oct. 29 against Southeastern (Fla.) — but they’ll have three home games next week. Following LSUA will be a 6 p.m. Dec. 1 game with Georgetown (Ky.) and a 5 p.m. Dec. 2 matchup with NAIA No. 13 Our Lady of the Lake.
