NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y.  – Security concerns forced the postponement of Friday’s boys basketball game between Mount Vernon and New Rochelle. The game will be played at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 28.

New Rochelle will charge $5 admission for the game for adults, and $2 for students. Fans must have identification to purchase a ticket.

According to a post on lohudblogs.com , the game was postponed by threats on social media and ongoing issues involving members of the community. The incidents do not involve players.

In October 2005, a football game was played on a Friday morning during school and spectators were not permitted to attend due to threat of violence in the communities. New Rochelle is 3-4, while Mount Vernon is 6-1. The teams are also scheduled to meet on Feb. 5.
