Atlanta gridlock strands North Carolina at the airport

1 Comment

Auburn and Alabama weren’t the only teams that had their schedule affected by the storm that “pummeled” the south with two or three inches of snow.

North Carolina flew into Atlanta Tuesday night for their Wednesday night game against Georgia Tech, but thanks to the gridlock on Atlanta highways, they couldn’t get a bus from the airport to their hotel.

The team was stranded for a while before they finally found a way to get a couple of vans to take them to the MARTA, Atlanta’s subway system. They got in at 1:45 a.m.

The weather and delay took its toll on Marcus Paige, but former Tar Heel and current UAB coach Bobby Frasor had his own thoughts on the matter:

London Perrantes out for Virginia against Ohio State

Virginia guard London Perrantes will miss Tuesday night’s game against Ohio State after having an appendectomy on Sunday (Nov. 29).

In a release from the school, it isn’t known if Perrantes will be able to play on Saturday against William & Mary.

The point guard was averaging 10 points, 5.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game this season. Without an experienced guard like Perrantes in the lineup, Virginia could see their better-looking offense slow down a bit. Malcolm Brogdon will probably carry more of the burden on offense and it will be interesting to see who head coach Tony Bennett asks to step up in place of Perrantes.


Purdue’s Rapheal Davis doubtful against Pitt

Purdue senior guard Rapheal Davis will likely miss his second consecutive game on Tuesday night as he recovers from a sprained MCL that he suffered in practice last week.

The Boilermakers travel to unbeaten Pitt tonight to play in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and Purdue associate SID Chris Forman said on Twitter that Davis is doubtful and couldn’t make it through practice the last few days.

While it will hurt Purdue to be without the reigning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, Davis is apart of a pretty deep Purdue team that should still be very competitive without him. The senior also missed Purdue’s win over Lehigh on Saturday and it’s probably best to make sure he’s healthy for the Big Ten conference season as the Boilers have big aspirations.
