Wednesday night’s Duke-North Carolina game was postponed due to snow.
The universities called off the game three hours before tip-off as Duke’s charter bus could not find its way to the school through the snow, let alone make the eleven mile journey to Chapel Hill.
The game will be made up on Feb. 20, as decided by both universities and the ACC. This is the only day that would work where both teams would not have to play two days in a row. According to goheels.com:
“The safety of the teams and officials is the number one priority and this was the best decision to make at this time,” North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham said in a statement. “Coach Williams, Coach Krzyzewski, (Duke AD) Kevin White and I will be on the phone with the ACC and make a decision as to when to play the game as soon as possible.”
Fans of both teams were abandoning their cars in the snow to try to make it in time for tip-off.
