NBA, College Games In Southern U.S. Rescheduled Due To Weather
Tonight's Pistons-Hawks game at Philips Arena has been postponed due to severe winter weather in the Atlanta region. The game "will be rescheduled but no date was immediately announced." In addition, the Alabama-Auburn men's basketball matchup scheduled for tonight was postponed to tomorrow, while Georgia and Georgia Tech's home men's hoops games "are going to be played as scheduled." The Vanderbilt-Georgia contest "will not be televised as scheduled because Comcast Sports could not get its truck to Athens" (AP, 1/29).
ESPN analyst Bob Wischusen on his Twitter feed wrote the network's coverage of the North Carolina-Georgia Tech game "has been canceled," as "safety of crew was primary concern" (TWITTER.com, 1/29).
