    EVANSTON, Ill. -- A three-game weekend series scheduled to be played in Lawrence, Kan. between Northwestern and the Kansas Jayhawks has been cancelled. The games will not be made up.

    The series was to be played Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Hoglund Ballpark, but Thursday's forecast is calling for six to 10 inches of snow and the rest of the weekend is showing temperatures hovering near freezing.

    Northwestern's second scheduled game of the season at the First Pitch Invitational was cancelled because of snow on Feb. 16. The 'Cats led Furman 4-2 in the top of the fifth inning before officials delayed and eventually scrapped the contest.

    The Wildcats (1-1) are scheduled continue the 2013 campaign March 1-3 with a three-game series at Missouri.
