After much anticipation, as there is every year for these, the match up scheduled for Wednesday evening between the Duke Blue Devils and the North Carolina Tar Heels has been effectively postponed due to inclement weather and rescheduled for Feb. 20, with the tip time still unannounced.


As you can see, this unfortunate happening tonight is going to create some issues for both teams, especially the Blue Devils who will be riding on a lot of adrenaline within that few day stretch when they play this rescheduled contest and then have to partake in their rematch with Syracuse.

The announcement came literally just a few hours before game time, with cars being stranded on the side of the road and folks walking nearly three miles to the Dean Dome. Ultimately, they decided against playing this one.
