Duke-Carolina game canceled after all

All day, UNC-Chapel Hill officials said the big game between Duke and UNC was still on for 9 p.m. Wednesday, but the school was forced to cancel the game about 6:45 p.m. when it became clear that the Duke players couldn’t make the trip to Chapel Hill.

CHAPEL HILL The North Carolina-Duke game has been postponed amid a winter storm that has wreaked havoc on area roadways. The game will be played on Feb. 20, according to a UNC statement.

“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.” UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham said in a statement. “The safety of the teams and officials is the number one priority and this was the best decision to make at this time.
