Basketball game still on
This came in from Virginia's sports information department...
It is anticipated the men’s basketball game between UNC Wilmington and Virginia will be played as scheduled at John Paul Jones Arena on Saturday (Dec. 19). The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
The possibility of inclement weather exists for the Charlottesville area on Saturday, but Atlantic Coast Conference protocol indicates games should be played if both teams and two of the three game officials have arrived at the site. The UNC Wilmington team is scheduled to arrive in Charlottesville Friday afternoon (Dec. 18) and game officials were contacted on Friday alerting them to the possibility of inclement weather so they could adjust their travel plans.
“We want our fans to know that we are planning to play Saturday’s game even in the event of inclement weather,” said Virginia Athletics Director Craig Littlepage. “We also want fans to be aware of the possibility of inclement weather and to check current weather conditions before traveling to the game.”
