Rain Interrupts ACC Basketball Game

ATLANTA (AP) _ Georgia Tech had to call off its game against
Virginia Thursday night because of a leaking roof at Tech's Alexander
Memorial Coliseum.
Yellow Jackets athletic director Dan Radakovich has not yet
decided if the teams could reschedule their Atlantic Coast
Conference matchup.
With the basketball floor wet in the lane near Georgia Tech's
bench, officials postponed the tipoff for 20 minutes. By 7:30 p.m.,
however, the game was postponed indefinitely because the
maintenance crew couldn't guarantee the leaks would stop.
Weather forecasts called for between two and three inches of
rain in metropolitan Atlanta.
The Yellow Jackets (11-13, 4-6 ACC) have lost three straight
games and four of last five.
Virginia (12-12, 2-9) is coming off a five-point win Sunday at
Boston College that stopped a seven-game losing streak.
