ATLANTA (AP) -The game between Virginia and Georgia Tech was called off Thursday night because of a leaking roof at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.Umm, that's not good. I guess it was good to cancel the game, but you might want to get that fixed for future games.
Georgia Tech athletic director Dan Radakovich said it had not been decided if the teams could reschedule the Atlantic Coast Conference matchup.
With the court wet in the lane near Georgia Tech's bench, officials first postponed the tip-off for 20 minutes. By 7:30 p.m., however, the game originally scheduled for 7 p.m. was postponed indefinitely because the maintenance crew couldn't guarantee the leaks would stop.
Weather forecasts called for between 2 and 3 inches of rain in metropolitan Atlanta.
