It now may be three weeks before the Albury-Wodonga Bandits can celebrate their annual Allen McCowan Memorial match.
With another Victorian lockdown throwing the NBL1 South competition yet again into chaos, Bandits' president Luke Smith believes the clubs' next chance at staging the game won't be until August 28.
The Bandits were scheduled to take on Knox at the Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre this weekend with no spectators.
"As soon as we get a game, we'll have the Allen McCowan game," Smith said.

After the uncertainty of the season and a return next weekend still up in the air due to Victoria's COVID outbreak, Smith said it's taking a toll on the border club.
"Players are starting to struggle, but that's the same for all sports," he said.
"It's starting to mentally affect the players."
If the competition is back, the Bandits' next encounters could be against Geelong and Nunawading.
