College basketball fans will need to wait to see one of the sports’ biggest rivalry games, as Wednesday night’s showdown between 8th ranked Duke and North Carolina has been postponed due to inclement weather.
“Duke’s bus is not able to get to their campus to pick up the team in time to be able to make the trip to Chapel Hill so we can’t play this evening.” Says UNC Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham. “The safety of the teams and officials is the number one priority and this was the best decision to make at this time. 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.”
The North Carolina Athletic Department also announced that a make up will occur, but it will not be played tomorrow for the same reason. However, the teams are scheduled to play on March 8 in Durham, and some are suggesting that tonight’s game should be rescheduled for March 9.
