Tonight’s men’s basketball game between the University of North Carolina and Duke University has been postponed due to inclement weather.

A makeup date has not been announced at this time. The game will NOT be played tomorrow, February 13th, due to the conditions.

“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.”
