The winter storm that has paralyzed the 9th largest city in the nation is now spilling over into the wide world of sports. ESPN’s broadcast of the UNC/Georgia Tech game has been cancelled due to inclement weather.
ESPN has canceled Wednesday’s broadcast of the North Carolina at Georgia Tech men’s basketball game.
ESPN crews were unable to safely get their equipment to McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta, where traffic has been snarled since Tuesday’s winter storm.
UNC spokesman Steve Kirschner said road conditions around the arena are poor. He added that team officials are still considering options on how to get the Tar Heels safely back to Chapel Hill following the game.
The game is still on for 7pm.
