Slick Court Dooms Carrier Classic

By Chris Lauderback on November 9, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Tonight's season opener against Marquette had to be cancelled due to a continuous build-up of condensation on the deck of the USS Yorktown. 

After delaying the start for nearly an hour, Thad Matta, Buzz Williams, the athletic directors and Carrier Classic officials correctly determined the court simply wasn't safe enough to play a game. 

A postponement to tomorrow was considered impossible with both Ohio State and Marquette already scheduled for Sunday home games. 

Kyle will have more on this story following the respective pressers. 

With tonight's cancellation, the Buckeyes will officially tip off the 2012-13 season against Albany this Sunday at 2pm in the Schott. 

...No word on if Ohio State will accept an invite to play in next year's Tornado Alley Classic.
