The Monmouth-Roseville boys' basketball team will have to wait another day before getting the chance to punch its ticket to the IHSA Class 2A state tournament in Peoria.

Tuesday's snow forced the postponement of the Titans' DeKalb Super-Sectional game against Winnebago to tonight at 8. The 1A Elite Eight game between Lanark Eastland and Newark, to be held prior to Mon-Rose's contest at the NIU Convocation Center, was also postponed. Tipoff for that game is 6 p.m. today.

Looking for its first Final Four appearance, Monmouth-Roseville takes a 26-4 record into tonight's matchup against the Indians, who sport a perfect 31-0 ledger.
