The winter storm and icy conditions moving through the South is causing teams to postpone games scheduled for this week, including Georgia Tech's contest with Boston College in Atlanta only hours after officials said things were a go.
As the storm continued Wednesday, officials with the Georgia Tech Athletic Association thought better about opening the basketball arena and chose to postpone the game until 5 p.m. ET on Thursday.
While both teams and game officials were in town, Georgia Tech administrators decided road conditions made it unsafe for many essential game operations personnel and fans to reach the downtown arena.
Northeastern's game at UNC-Wilmington scheduled for Wednesday night also was postponed until Thursday.
