Due to the storm that devastated the South and the Carolina region, Wednesday’s scheduled basketball game between Duke and North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been postponed. The game will be played on February 20.
The postponement came about 3½ hours before the scheduled tipoff at 9:10 p.m.
UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham said in a statement that Duke’s bus couldn’t make it to the Durham campus to pick up the Blue Devils for the 11-mile drive to Chapel Hill. He called the postponement “the best decision to make at this time” due to safety concerns.
Atlantic Coast Conference policy states that games will go on in during bad weather if teams, officials and operations staffers can make it to the venue.
