The "snowpocalypse" that has crippled about 12 percent of the country has also postponed two games already. Are more halts coming in the next hour or two? If so, I'll update this post. (UPDATE: UNC-Wilmington-Delware, High Point-Radford and Florida A&M-Morgan State all have been postponed.)
Marcus Ginyard tweeted the picture you see now, evidence of what UNC is facing before it can head to the Comcast Center to play Maryland, a game scheduled for tomorrow.
In fact, the team was forced to run its practice in a hotel ballroom instead of heading down to more proper facilities. Hey, maybe it'll get UNC back on the right track. Nothing like the sound of a basketball bouncing on a maroon hotel carpet to bring you back to reality.
Elsewhere, Scottie Reynolds and Antonio Pena braved riding the Metro in Washington, D.C. — where nearly three feet of snow is expected when the damage is done — in an attempt to reach the Verizon Center before the rest of the team. Soon, they were recognized. Those who picked them out? Hoyas fans, of course, who started chanting for their beloved school. Reynolds wanted to show up early so he could get some extra shooting in.
Turns out he and Pena showed up 15 minutes later than the rest of the team. It'll be a good story for the children 15 years from now.
If you're buried in one those white wonderlands, we suggest you stay safe and avoid the roads — and check in with The Dagger for the rest of the day, where we'll have continual updated coverage.
