Safety concerns in the area due to winter weather has caused officials to postpone the NC State and North Carolina basketball that was scheduled for Saturday.

According to WRAL:

“Considering the travel conditions we are not comfortable with the idea that thousands of people, from the players, coaches and officials to fans of both teams and the hundreds of people that staff the Smith Center for the game, would be leaving the arena tonight after 10 p.m.,” said UNC Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham. “Everyone attending the game on Sunday will still need to use extreme caution in getting to and from the game, but we think there is a huge difference between driving in the daylight as opposed to this evening, when conditions are expected to be treacherous.”

The game will be played on Sunday at 1:00pm and broadcast on ESPN.
