With the Rio Mardi Gras parade set to roll Saturday night beginning at 6:30, Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun women's/men's doubleheader in basketball has been moved up.

Originally scheduled to begin at 4:00 with the women, followed by 6:15 for the men, the games will now tip two hours earlier.

Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun women's basketball team will tip-off at the Cajundome against UT-Arlington at 2:00. The Ragin' Cajun men's basketball team will follow, tipping off at approximately 4:15.

Times were moved to avoid traffic congestion caused by the parade, as well as providing an opportunity for fans to enjoy all of Saturday's festivities, from the games to the carnival season.

The women are currently on a 4 game winning streak, sporting an impressive 14-3 record, with a 7-1 mark in Sun Belt Conference play.

The Cajun men are riding a 4 game winning streak, with a 9-8 record and 4-3 mark in conference play.

Both squads are undefeated at the Cajundome this season.
