UNC-Maryland Game On As Scheduled
Feb. 6, 2010
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball game between Maryland and North Carolina will be played as scheduled at the Comcast Center on Sunday, Feb. 7th. The game is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. ACC protocol indicates games should be played if both teams and two of the three game officials have arrived at the site. The Tar Heel team is in College Park as are the three game officials.
Due to the unprecedented weather conditions, the University of Maryland encourages fans to carefully evaluate treacherous travel conditions before driving to campus and to consider other options. While University crews are working around-the-clock shifts to have roads, sidewalks, steps and parking lots cleared, it should be anticipated that large portions of gameday parking lots and sidewalks will be snow-covered due to the historic blizzard and many garage spots will be occupied by on-campus resident students. We expect reserved lots will be plowed and staffed, but not all spaces will be available. Regents Drive Garage will be available free of charge while spaces remain.
The game will be televised by Fox Sports Net and shown locally by Comcast SportsNet.
The Terrapin Club pregame buffet scheduled in Sprint Heritage Hall is cancelled.
